Changes to Free Swimming Scheme

There will be changes to free swimming sessions from Monday, 4 November 2019.

Welsh Government and Sport Wales have reviewed the Free Swimming Initiative across Wales and have decided to change the scheme.  This means the Council now only receives half the amount of funding and the current scheme will change.

In Conwy’s swimming pools the new scheme offers:

Councillor Louise Emery, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Leisure said: "Swimming can have a number of health benefits for individuals and communities, and our aim is to continue to make swimming accessible.”

"The free swimming initiative has given many Conwy residents the opportunity to access our swimming pools which, for some, may have not been possible without the scheme. We’re working with the staff at our swimming pools to minimise the impact of these national changes."

If you have any questions about the free swimming sessions please contact your local swimming pool manager.
