Helping your family stay fit and have fun at YMCA North Shore

Top notch facilities for you to play sport, get fit and stay healthy with the whole family.

YMCA North Shore includes one of the largest indoor soccer courts in Auckland, three squash courts, table tennis hire and we also host a basketball competition for primary school aged children.

Our fitness facilities at YMCA North Shore Recreation Centre can help you achieve your goals. We think exercise is more fun when it’s done together, so we’ve got a group fitness class to suit everyone. Plus, for those wanting an extra push or a bit of support, our team of fitness trainers and personal trainers are always on board and ready to help.

Becoming a member was never this easy! We have options for the whole family and also offer child minding services while you are using our facilities. Our kids and youth programmes are super fun for kids of all ages too; so you might just find that the family never wants to leave.

"We help build strong kids, strong families and strong communities"
