A sauna, basketball court, climbing wall and more!

Along with a full 24/7 fitness centre, at the Y Southland we have a range of other awesome facilities for you to make use of.


Sauna access is free with your Y gym membership. Recently refurbished, this space is ideal for warming up on a cold Southland day, or relaxing after a workout. The sauna is operational from 6am to 9pm each day.

We have a full indoor basketball court/stadium area. This is an awesome, multi-purpose space that is available for community bookings.

This space is under redevelopment in early 2024, so please get in touch for more information. We are excited to modernise the stadium area, thanks to community funding, and it will be a fantastic community space once completed.

For bookings please phone 03 218 2989.

Room hire
