Free swimming during the holidays is available for children aged 16 and under who live in the Dudley borough. Children can swim in sessions called ‘Public swimming’. To register go to www.freeswimindudley.co.uk.

The 'Boombox' aqua run sessions and the fun float sessions are not part of the free swimming scheme, therefore the relevant admission price will be charged. Please note that a swimming test is required before participation (1.15pm - 1.30pm), this includes jumping into deep water, treading deep water for 10 seconds and swimming one length of the pool using a competent stroke (not backstroke). Please be advised that a floatation aid cannot be used for the swimming test. 

Family swimming sessions are open to juniors that are accompanied by a responsible adult aged 16 years and over. Adults 16 years of age cannot use the Free Swimming scheme if they are bringing an under 8 into the pool.

Ladies only sessions will not take place over the school holidays/Christmas period.
