To access this offer, registration must be completed prior to visiting the centres. Parents or children aged 13 or older can sign up straight away. You will then be issued with a QR code which will need to be scanned every time you visit the leisure centres. T&Cs apply*
If children have previously registered they do not need to register again as QR codes will still be active. If you have lost your original email and QR code, just click on ‘Resend code’ option in the menu at the top of the page.
Families without access to a computer or internet can sign up at any of the borough’s libraries.
The centres also offer family fun disability sessions specifically for youngsters with disabilities or special educational needs. Session times are available in the swimming pool links opposite.
