Kids Swim Free in Dudley
Free swimming for children aged 16 and under during Dudley borough school holidays*
The free swimming scheme will return Saturday 23 December 2023 to Sunday 7 January 2024 inclusive.
Important changes to terms and conditions for free swimming admission!
• All children under the age of eight must be accompanied into the water by a responsible adult aged 18 years of age and above. One adult must accompany no more than two children under the age of eight into the water.
• To be allowed entrance for free swimming children aged eight or over must be accompanied and supervised in the leisure centre for the duration of their visit by a responsible adult aged 18 years of age and above. The adult does not need to supervise the child in the water (unless attending a family swimming session) but must remain in the centre at all times and be immediately contactable. If children aged 8 and over attend the pool unaccompanied by an adult they may still swim but this will be charged at the standard rate.
• Children can not attend family sessions unless a responsible adult is in the water with them.
• The responsible adult will not be charged a spectator fee. You are welcome to wait in the café and use the free Wi-Fi and purchase food and drink. Unfortunately bringing your own food and drink is not permitted. Please note that the cafe at Crystal leisure centre closed on Friday 31 March. The seating area has remained open and vending machines are available.
Children aged 16 and under who live in the Dudley borough are eligible to swim for free at Crystal Leisure Centre (Stourbridge), Duncan Edwards Leisure Centre (Dudley) and Halesowen Leisure Centre during public swimming times (see opposite for details).
Free swimming will be offered during Dudley school holidays.
Swimming is a great way to get children active, keep them healthy and have fun during the school holidays.
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.
Let’s get kids active with free swimming sessions at Dudley borough leisure centres.
Please be advised that a queuing system may be in place during busy times!
