Free swimming

Free swimming sessions are available if you are aged 60 or over, or receiving disability benefits.

Who can swim free of charge?

You can swim for free if you are a resident and:

  • you are aged 60 or over (at designated times)

  • have a disability and are receiving disability benefits (you will need to register for the Be Active scheme at your local leisure centre).

How does free swim work?

You can swim at any of our pools in the borough.

2. Check the timings for free swimming

Each of our swimming pools is offering free swim sessions at different times of the day.

If you are a resident aged 60 or over, or you have a disability and are registered with the Be Active scheme, you can swim for free in any adult session.

3. Take your leisure centre card with you

If you are 60 or over, or have a disability make sure you are registered with the Be Active scheme at your local leisure centre.
