Half term fun with free swim and gym

Published Tuesday, 05 February 2013

Fun-tastic! Under 16s from Enfield will be able to swim and use gym facilities free of charge between 16 - 24 February thanks to a special half term offer by Enfield Council and Fusion Lifestyle.


The offer is available during all school holidays and Enfield Council hopes the deal will help encourage the next crop of Olympic and Paralympic Athletes to represent Great Britain in years to come.

As well as swimming, Enfield leisure centres have excellent gym facilities including all the latest equipment available to stay fit, healthy and have fun during the school holidays. To take advantage of the free offer during all school holiday periods youngsters must apply for the concession card.

Free swimming is available during all advertised general/child specific swimming sessions at Albany Leisure Centre, Arnos Pool, Edmonton Leisure Centre, Southbury Leisure Centre and Southgate Leisure Centre.

Gym facilities are available at Albany Leisure Centre, Aspire Sports & Fitness Centre, Edmonton Leisure Centre, Southbury Leisure Centre and newly refurbished Southgate Leisure Centre. To use the gyms visitors must be aged between 14-16 years of age, and will have to undertake a short induction of the equipment and the gym layout.

All gym facilities will be open at the following times during the school holiday period:

Monday - Friday 7:00am - 6.00pm

Saturday & Sunday 8:00am - 6.00pm

Cllr Bambos Charalambous, Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure said “If you were wondering what to do with the children over half term you do not need to worry any more.

“Take them down to your local Fusion leisure centre and make use of the free swimming and gym offer, it will keep them occupied, and get them fit at the same time and hopefully it will help the borough unearth a future Olympic or Paralympic athlete."
