50+

Pool activities for the over 50s to enjoy

We have some dedicated sessions for adults aged 50+ in the pool.

Here are some of our current sessions, but do check out our timetable for times and prices.

Forever Active Aqua

An aerobics session in the pool for 50+ that can maintain and improve stamina, strength and suppleness as well as increase cardiovascular fitness. Unlike aerobics on land Aqua Fit is low-impact and the cushioning effect of the water protects joints in the spine, ankle, hip and knees.  It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities as particiants can work at a variety of levels by increasing effort and using resistive equipment.

50+ Swimming

An unstructured session available for those 50 and above.
