Kid for a quid swimming at Yarborough

Child swim: Yarborough Leisure Centre is introducing discounted swimming for children this summer.

Kids can go swimming for just one pound per session at Yarborough Leisure Centre this month.

Active Nation, who run the centre in partnership with City of Lincoln Council, are trying to get children to have fun and keep fit at the same time.

Up until July 2010 when it was stopped, children benefited from the government ‘s Free Swimming Initiative. Active Nation says it is “on a mission to persuade the nation to be active”.

The price reduction applies to those aged between 5 and 15 years old. Under 5’s swimming is 95 pence a session and savings can also be made on Family Swim tickets.

There’s a 25-metre main pool at Yarborough Leisure Centre, which has three diving boards. For younger children and less experienced swimmers there’s also a smaller training pool.

Yarborough Leisure Centre has many casual swimming sessions across the day. Full timetable details can be found on its website.
