What can I book/pay online?

Buying your membership online is a quick, hassle-free way to join: just follow the online instructions.

Sports club memberships

If you have bought and paid for your Oriam membership online, you can then pay for your sports club membership online too. (Please note: because you need to have a valid Oriam membership to join a sports club, the online booking system will not let you buy a sports club membership unless you have a valid Oriam membership.)
