September special offer for older swimmers - South Oxfordshire

September special offer for older swimmers - South Oxfordshire

Residents of southern Oxfordshire aged 60 and over can sign up for a month's swimming for just £5 thanks to a special September offer from South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse District Councils and 'Better' leisure centres.

Would-be swimmers simply register for the offer by visiting the GO Active Gold website or by calling 01235 422219 by 27 September.

Once they have received confirmation they can visit the participating leisure centres throughout September to swim as many times as they like for a one-off payment of £5. The month-long swim deal will start from the date of the first swim. More »

The scheme is part of the district councils' GO Active Gold programme, funded by Sport England, which aims to increase health and well-being among people aged 60 and over living in rural areas across South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse.

The participating centres are:

  • Abbey Sports Centre, Berinsfield
  • Didcot Wave
  • Faringdon Leisure Centre
  • Henley Leisure Centre
  • Thame Leisure Centre
  • Wantage Leisure Centre
  • White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre, Abingdon

Cllr Alice Badcock, Cabinet Member for Leisure at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: "Swimming is fun and a great way to get active and keep healthy. This is a fantastic offer - for less than the cost of two sessions, people can swim as many times as they want during the month and everyone who signs up get free guest passes, so friends and family can join too."

Cllr Lynn Lloyd, Cabinet Member for Leisure at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: "Since launching in 2016, GO Active Gold has helped thousands of older people in rural areas get more active. The £5 swimming offer is just the latest offering from this great project."

This offer is not available to existing 'Better' members or those that have held a membership in the previous three months. This offer has limited availability, so register early to avoid disappointment. » Less
