Leisure cen­tres open to city’s young peo­ple

Western Mail - - WM2 -

PAUL Driscoll’s let­ter (West­ern Mail, De­cem­ber 5) re­gard­ing the times teenagers can ac­cess pub­lic leisure cen­tres in Cardiff did not give the full pic­ture – which I am happy to do.

As a so­cial en­ter­prise, GLL ex­ists to get more peo­ple more ac­tive more of­ten in Cardiff. Fol­low­ing feed­back with cus­tomers, we have ex­tended the num­ber of young peo­ple (11-15) who can at­tend ju­nior gym ses­sions within su­per­vised hours. We have dis­con­tin­ued the open ac­cess policy for 14- and 15-year-olds be­cause we don’t be­lieve it is safe or con­trolled.

Time slots are not pre-set but vary on de­mand and ca­pac­ity at each of our eight fa­cil­i­ties across the city.

If any cus­tomers have any ques­tions about this policy, please con­tact the gen­eral man­ager at your lo­cal cen­tre. Ja­son Cur­tis GLL, South West & Wales
