FREE swimming is being offered in Huddersfield pools.
Residents 16 and under and over 60 will be able to swim for free at public swim sessions at Kirklees Active Leisure pools after the launch of a new initiative in April.
Kirklees Council has provided funding to support the government’s grant towards a free swimming programme and has teamed up with Kirklees Active Leisure to offer the swim4free programme which will run for two years.
The swim4free programme means that younger and older people swimmer can swim in over 200 hours of public swim sessions each week across Kirklees for free.
Families will be able to enjoy public swimming sessions at a reduced cost as only the adults will need to pay.
