Medway's leisure centres

Free swimming

Free swimming is available in council’s leisure centres for under-11s and over-60s living in Medway during normal opening times. Club sessions etc are not included.

From 1 April 2014, all under-16s will also be able to swim for free at Medway Park, Strood Sports Centre, Hundred of Hoo Sports Centre, Splashes Leisure Pool and The Strand. This is a new scheme thanks to an extra £60,000 investment by Medway Council.  

To take up the offer, residents will need proof that they live in Medway and will be able to do this with a free Medway City Card.

The card – Medway Council’s discount card for local shops – is being used as it is the cheapest and easiest way to start free swimming as quickly as possible.

All under-16s and those over-60 will need the card to take part in free swimming and can get one for free by applying for it on the Medway City Card website.
