School's out for summer. Leisure for Life's in!

Secondary school pupils are being offered unlimited Leisure for Life membership for the entire six-week summer holidays for just £20!

Pupils aged 11 and over can use Leisure for Life gyms independently*, so a sizzling summer offer has been created to encourage them to love leisure this Summer.

Buy a School’s Out Leisure for Life pass from your nearest centre now to enjoy unlimited gym sessions (including free induction), age-appropriate fitness classes, swimming (not just the set school holiday free swims), a swimming activity like lessons or rookie lifeguards and indoor sports including squash or badminton.

It’s so easy to join, simply purchase your pass for £20 to enjoy unlimited Junior Leisure for Life every day of the school summer holidays.

Cllr Ann Crimmings, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Leisure and Heritage Services, said: “This is an exceptional offer for secondary school pupils – including those who finished school after their GCSEs and other exams – to enjoy Leisure for Life in the six-week summer holidays.

“It is a chance for them to see what is on offer for them across nine leisure centres, meet our knowledgeable and supportive staff and enjoy a taste of what is on offer via the Junior Leisure for Life membership.

“We are seeing an increase in the number of young people taking out Leisure for Life membership, especially for the gyms – they love the modern equipment, the helpful staff and the technology that allows them to live stream music whilst also working out.

“Because induction is free, and junior Leisure for Life membership works out at less than £5 a week, it is a great way for them to start their fitness journey and spend their after-school and weekend free time in a positive and healthy way.

“Using the gym is also a great way for young people who are involved in other sports, such as football, netball, rugby and athletics to keep up their overall fitness and all staff in Leisure for Life gyms have the expertise to help them create a gym routine that assists with their wider sporting routine.

“Going to the gym is also a great way to meet new people, spend social time with your friends and it is proven to have a positive impact on your physical and mental health and wellbeing – something we all want for our children.”

Those aged 11 or over can use Leisure for Life gyms. An induction is needed but this is free of charge.

Please note, after a certain time of day, junior members are only allowed in the gym with an adult. This varies from centre to centre and you can check timetables here:

Leisure for Life also offers classes designed for junior members or for families to take part in, such as trampolining, gymnastic and family spin – you can see more information here

Free school holiday swimming sessions are provided for all those aged 16 and under across Leisure for Life – check with your local pool for more information. Junior membership offers unlimited swimming in all sessions, as well as an aquatic activity such as lessons or rookie lifeguards.

If you like your six-week membership offer, ask your nearest leisure centre for more information on Junior Leisure for Life membership, which is £23 a month if you pay by direct debit on an annual membership.

*Gyms can be used by those aged 11 and over following induction. Induction is free of charge. Please note, the times at which those aged over 11 and under 16 can attend the gym unaccompanied varies from leisure centre to leisure centre. There are also sessions where those aged 11 plus can attend, but only if they are accompanied by an adult. Please check times.
