Dive right into free summer swim sessions at Gedling pools

Residents in Gedling are being invited to take the plunge for free during swimming sessions being organised by Gedling Borough Council which are sure to make a splash this summer.

The sessions, which launch next Wednesday (29), are taking place at Arnold Leisure Centre, Calverton Leisure Centre and Carlton Forum.

Residents only need a Gedling Leisure Card to swim for free during the sessions. Those without a can pick one up for free when they attend one of the free swims in July and August.

The Swim4All sessions are being organised as part of a push to combat the national decline in swimming and promote its numerous health benefits. As well as the emphasis on fitness, the council wants to remind people that swimming is a perfect activity to share and enjoy as a family.

Councillor Henry Wheeler, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Health and Well-being said: “Swimming is a sport that should be easily accessible to people of all ages because the benefits are huge. I would encourage everyone, young and old, to take advantage of our free swimming sessions.

“Regular swimming can reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke, as well as boost your mood and keep your weight under control.”
