Dive in from Thursday, October 2

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre in Rugby is inviting visually impaired local people to dive into a new exercise routine and participate in all inclusive swimming sessions.

The leisure centre run by Better, the UK’s largest leisure provider, is providing drop-in sessions for visually impaired swimmers. These sessions will begin on Thursday, October 2 from 10.00 am -1.00pm and are available at a reduced cost of £2.20 for adults and 95p for juniors (two-16 year olds); carers and guides can swim for free.

Philip Lisseman, General Manager said: “Swimming is a healthy activity that has minimal impact on the body and offers lots of cardiovascular benefits. It is also an opportunity to meet new people and boost self confidence. The drop-in swim session is in partnership with the Warwickshire Association for the Blind and we hope this is the first of many sporting sessions we can provide for the visually impaired.”

There is no need to book, just come along between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm and pay and swim. For more information please phone the centre on 01788 565369 or email Georgia.barrett@gll.org
