Halo Leisure is more than just your local gym, join us while we dive deep into their exciting swimming, fitness and wellness opportunities available for everyone across Bridgend this summer.
Splish, Splash, Splosh
Since 2012 the Bridgend County Borough Council partnered with Halo Leisure to manage leisure centres and swimming pools across Bridgend and the surrounding areas, to improve the health and wellbeing in our community. In addition, Halo also operates the National Free Swimming Initiative. This means at Halo under 17s and over 60s can swim for free. And this isn’t the only way to swim without splashing the cash this summer.
With Bridgend’s Summer of Fun there is a range of swimming activities for all the family to join. You can even swim with mermaids!
Why not get the Halo app and book your free swimming sessions for your summer of fun?
Can’t swim? No problem, not only are there fun sessions available where you can simply enjoy water, but there are also swimming lessons available with Halo, for all ages and abilities. And if you’re already a swimmer, you could train to be a lifeguard this summer. Which is a lifesaver for those families who need to work over the holidays, as there’s more than swimming available at Halo this summer.
More than just your local gym and swimming pool
Halo has a range of holiday activities available to give children the opportunity to meet and make friends with other local children, discover new interests, explore and try out new sports and activities, and stay fit and healthy. From ‘art attack’ to ‘soft play’ there’s something colourful for all children to enjoy.
Don’t worry, Halo hasn’t forgotten other age groups. Don’t believe us? Watch this.
Inspired? Check out the discounts, deals and free passes available to celebrate Halo’s 20th Birthday this month.
And if this hasn’t inspired you to join in with your community this summer or do something just for you and your own headspace, Bridgend County Borough Council has even more to offer.
