Cotswold Leisure Centre Everyone Active

A community leisure which has numerous facilities including a large sports hall,25 metre pool and 11 metre small pool, gym and group exercise, also they have a creche and children’s parties. They have numerous times/sessions for swimming lessons as well community groups including football and martial arts.  For adults, they have a great relax zone and physiotherapy clinic.  It is very much a family friendly centre with a great cafe at its heart where they service snacks, sandwiches, drinks, cakes and hot food.

It is a fully accessible centre with a lift, numerous disabled changing rooms and toilets, a fully hoisted changing area and pool side chair to enable people to gain pool access if required. The staff are all approachable and supportive of families and individuals with SEND which is fantastic.

I started using the centre around 8 years ago whilst on maternity leave and they have a brilliant crèche facility for children under school age from 9.30 until 11.30am.  This enables you to exercise and know your child is happy, secure and safe, at a cost of £1.50 per hour.  My children have attended Rugby Tots sessions, dance classes and both learnt to swim here. With regards to the swimming lessons the teachers have been so accommodating with regards to SEND which has resulted in our son being offered one to one lessons.  This has enabled him to progress much further with his swimming and water confidence skills.

For swimming sessions, they do offer free carer passes for anyone assisting an individual with a specific need which is great. This is not fully explained on their website so please do ask the staff.

It is a great place to visit and if you are new to the area or want your children to join a club definitely pop in and see what they have on offer.
