Free adult swimming is back!

Free adult swimming sessions are back for residents as part of the Hull Big Swim campaign which aims to help adults get active.

The free sessions will be on offer during February and March at Ennerdale Leisure Centre, Woodford Leisure Centre and Beverley Road Baths.

And those feeling anxious about returning to the swimming pool can also take advantage of confidence sessions to ease their transition back into the water. A women’s-only swim confidence session will also be on offer at Beverley Road Baths.

Councillor Alison Collinson, chair of Hull Culture and Leisure, said: “This is a fantastic initiative that encourages Hull residents to be more active for free and have always proved incredibly popular.

“Swimming is a great all-round activity that is brilliant for keeping your mental and physical health in check.”

There are ten free sessions on offer each week at various times across the city’s pools, with five swim confidence sessions running every week with a qualified instructor.

More information and application forms can be completed at or registration can be completed at the receptions of the participating centres.
