Spring to action at leisure centres this Easter
Children of all ages can take part in fun and games at Dudley and Halesowen leisure centres during the Easter holidays.
The Dudley Council owned facilities will be hosting a jam packed fortnight of fun from Saturday 13 to Sunday 28 April.
Both centres are opening their pools every day with free swimming offered to children aged 16 and under who have registered for the council’s scheme.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays during the holidays, there will be two full days of ‘junior activezone’ fun at Dudley Leisure Centre. Suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years, the activities will run from 9am to 4pm including multi skills, crafts, team games and swimming. It costs £20 each day per child.
At Halesowen Leisure Centre an inflatable aqua run session for children aged eight years and above will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the holiday. Children must be a minimum of 1.2 metres in height and are required to take a swimming test. There are also fun float sessions every Monday and Friday during the holidays. Sessions take place from 1.15pm to 3pm in the main pool and 1.30pm to 3pm in the learner pool. Both fun sessions cost £4.40 for adults and £2.90 for under 16s.
Juniors can take advantage of the £7 for 7 days offer at Halesowen Leisure Centre on both weeks and receive unlimited access between 9am – 5pm. Activities include use of the swimming pools, fun aqua run and float sessions, plus use of the squash courts and table tennis.
Alan Lunt, strategic director for place, said:
We have a wonderful variety of activities on offer at Dudley and Halesowen Leisure Centre this Easter and I am confident these sessions will be popular with children and parents alike.”
