TO help beat the sum­mer hol­i­day bore­dom three Bucks leisure cen­tres have given away more than 10,000 free swim passes to lo­cal school chil­dren.

In ad­di­tion to launch­ing sum­mer only adult and ju­nior swimming passes at re­duced rates, Bet­ter Leisure Cen­tres in Chal­font St Peter, Amer­sham and Che­sham have given away the free swim passes. The leisure cen­tre, run by GLL, is en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren and adults to make swimming a habit this sum­mer as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Part­ner­ship man­ager at Bet­ter Chal­font Leisure Cen­tre Lynn Brit­ten said: “We are ex­cited to of­fer this op­por­tu­nity for school chil­dren to swim dur­ing the sum­mer hol­i­days. It’s a great ex­er­cise and keeps them en­ter­tained at the same time. Most chil­dren love splash­ing about on the wa­ter and let’s not for­get that swimming is a valu­able life skill.”

“Swimming is a great ac­tiv­ity if you have a busy sched­ule. Just 30 min­utes of gen­tle swimming on your lunch break can burn over 200 calo­ries, and with our un­lim­ited passes, you can swim ev­ery day and re­ally make a dif­fer­ence in your fit­ness level.”

Bet­ter Un­lim­ited Swimming Passes are avail­able for the whole fam­ily this sum­mer. Ju­nior passes are valid un­til Septem­ber 4 and adult passes un­til Septem­ber 6.
