We are super delighted to report that ALL of our staff are all fully qualified as Lifeguards. This is very important to us as your safety in our centre is paramount. We are very proud of all staff! Do give them a pat on the back when you see them :)
Thank you for your continued support and we very much look forward to welcoming you as a member and user of Withington Baths & Leisure Centre.
Are you up for the July Gym Challenge? Complete 3 exercises back to back - and whoever completes the most reps will win a prize.There's a prize for top male and top female. Speak to a member of staff for more information.
Are you in college or 6th form, completing your Duke of Edinburgh Award, or even a parent of a child that swims at our baths? We are rolling out an exciting new volunteer program that will train you to be a fully qualified swim teacher.
In exchange for 40 hours of your volunteered time assisting in our childrens swim lessons, we will pay for your level one teaching aquatic course. This could be contributed by as little as one hour per week. In exchange for an additional 40 volunteered hours, we will pay half the cost of your level two teaching aquatic course, at approx. £350. You will then be fully qualified and ready to begin a rewarding new career as a swimming teacher.
We want to hear from people who are great with kids, reliable and trustworthy, and can impress us in an entrance interview. Interested? Please email our swimming officer Sam at email@example.com, with a little bit about you and why you’d like to take part. We look forward to hearing from you!
Please be aware that during the month of July, Studio 1 will be undergoing a big refurbishment, to bring it into line with Studio 2. As a result, we have a new, condensed timetable for the month - please make sure you check the timetable carefully, so that you do not miss your favourite class. If you wnat to see the refurb progress, do pop over to our Facebook page, where we are regularly posting updates.
We now offer free fitness assessments to all our members. During these assessments we will measure blood pressure levels, body composition, muscular endurance, cardiovascular fitness and flexibility.
Members who are interested should contact the reception to be booked in with one of our personal trainers.
“I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you and your team… We attended your centre for a swim, your team were extremely helpful both on the telephone before we arrived and on our arrival. This continued as the young lady on reception helped with the wheel chair and guided us to the disabled changing room. My niece is disabled and water is an amazing soother for her and helps with her physio, so to find this little swimming haven is amazing . We did not know your baths existed before today, but will now make this our preferred swimming venue.” - Tracy
