On Saturday 12 July there will be a funday, for all to enjoy, celebrating the reopening of the pools.

 

After the repairs to the leaking pipework the pool is scheduled to open on Monday at 7:30am for early morning swimming and regular sessions thereafter. Other work has also been carried out to improve the centre.

 

The funday will feature swimming from 10am-4pm for £2 per person, plus children’s judo taster sessions at 9.45 and 10.45am for £1 per person.

 

Tracy James, centre manager stated “we took advantage of the pools being drained to do further work too, such as re-grouting and repairing broken tiles. We have also constructed new access hatches to the pipework, so that they will be much easier to reach in future.”

 

There will be fitness taster classes for over 16’s and many activities including kettlecise, bootcamp and body pump. And not to forget the pre-school gymnastics taster session and bouncy castle at 2.15pm, also costing £2.

 

Not only is the event great for all the family, it also raises money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, which this year supports the charities of Leicester Sea Cadets, Prostate Cancer UK and Silver Star Diabetes.

 

Assistant city mayor responsible for culture, leisure and sport, Cllr Piara Singh Clair said “I’m really pleased that the popular pools at Leicester Leys are reopening just in time for the holidays. The funday will be a good way for families to kick off the summer holidays and raise money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.”

 

The funday will be a great opportunity to have fun with all the family. With so much to do, make sure you don’t miss out. Cllr Piara Singh Clair states “our city leisure centres offer quality facilities and a wide range of fitness and leisure activities. They are a great place to visit to beat summer holiday boredom.”
