Free swimming at Crystal extended

Posted on:

Free swimming for children will be on offer at the Crystal Leisure Centre in Stourbridge for an extra weekend, following its unexpected closure this week.

The leisure pool has been closed since Saturday, the start of half term when children can swim for free.

It is expected to open later this week, but Dudley Council’s leisure chief is offering an extra weekend of free swimming at the Stourbridge pool on November 6 and 7 to make up for it.

Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member responsible for leisure centres, said:

We apologise for any inconvenience the unexpected closure has caused this half term and we know families will have been disappointed.
But we didn’t want children to miss out on their free swimming so I hope families will take up the extended offer in the first weekend of November.”

Any youngster aged 16 and under who lives in Dudley borough is eligible to take advantage of the offer by registering online at
