    Leisure Centres to close from 10pm Wednesday 30 December 2020

    Following the latest Government announcement that Derbyshire will be moving to Tier 4, we are sorry to say that once again our centres will be closing.

    Our centres will close at 10pm this evening until further notice.

    More information will be added to our website and social media channels in the following days.

    We will continue to offer daily online workouts to help keep you active whilst at home.

    Memberships

    Due to the timing of the Government announcement it is not possible for us to stop direct debit collections for 1 January 2021.

    If your direct debit is usually collected on the first of the month, no payment will be taken in the first month back after reopening. Other direct debits will not be collected during this period. Anyone with a pre-paid membership will have the closure period added to the end of the current contract.

    If you have any specific enquiries regarding your membership that you can't find the answer to online, you can email qpscenquiries@chesterfield.gov.uk. However please be aware our admin team is currently dealing a high volume of enquiries so please be patient. Your enquiry will be dealt with as soon as possible.

We offer a comprehensive learn to swim programme for all ages and abilities, including:

Swim England Learn To Swim Pathway

All our lessons are delivered by highly qualified and motivated staff in a safe and fun environment.

Our swimming lessons follow the Swim England national teaching plan to provide quality assured and structured lessons.

Swimming assessments are carried out on an on-going basis, to ensure children are continually learning and moving up through the stages, which happens when they have reached the required level of proficiency.

To ensure progressive development, our classes run 50 weeks a year, with payments made in 12-week blocks.

Free recreational swimming for all children booked on to our courses at either of our centres, when accompanied by a paying adult during the current course dates.

Course fees

See our full price list for current charges for swimming lessons.
