Free Swimming for Under 8s and Over 80s

In partnership with Places Leisure under 8s and over 80s can swim for free at any of our leisure centres. 

How do I register for free swimming?

If you have children up to the age of eight, they can swim for free at any of Parminster’s leisure centres provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

If you are over 80, please bring suitable ID to prove your age (for example a birth certificate, passport, driving licence or pension book).

For children and over 80s, there is a £5 registration fee for a membership card to show each time you come for a swim.

Please note - Under 8s must swim with an adult

  • Children under eight years old MUST be supervised by a parent or adult (18 years or over) throughout their use of the pool facilities.
  • Maximum ratio of two children to one adult. Those supervising must accompany the children in the water.
  • You should familiarise yourself with the safety rules beforehand.
