Swim or play for only £1

People in West Oxfordshire are being offered an incentive to get active during the school half term - with a swim or play for £1 offer at the Districtís leisure centres.

Young people under the age of 16 will have the chance to swim for only £1 at Carterton Leisure Centre and the Windrush Leisure Centre in Witney during the week-long half term break, which starts on Monday, February 12.

At Chipping Norton Leisure Centre, everyone - regardless of age Ė will have the opportunity to play badminton, squash, tennis or table tennis for only £1 between 9am and 5pm during the week.

The discounts are being offered by Wycombe Leisure Ltd, which runs each of the centres on behalf of West Oxfordshire District Council.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: "These offers have been run in the past and they've proved extremely popular, so itís wonderful that they are available again and I hope people will take full advantage.

"There is a range of facilities at each of the centres and if you're not already a user, this is a great opportunity to explore whatís on offer."

Matt Pritchard, Carterton Leisure Centre Manager, said: "We want to encourage children of all ages to enjoy their leisure experience and maintain an active involvement in sporting activities outside of school.
"We have a planned pool programme that allows all children to get a dose of daily exercise in a fun, social environment all for just £1."

Timings for the offer vary at Carterton and Windrush swimming pools and people are advised to either pick up a programme from the leisure centres or to call them direct to find out when the discount applies. You can call Carterton on 01993 861981, Chipping Norton on 01993 861951 or the Windrush on 01993 202020.
