Take advantage of Calderdale Council’s Sports offer

Posted on

We all know it can be easy to over indulge at Christmas, but to get a head start on that New Year’s Resolution, why not take advantage of Calderdale Council’s December sports offer?

If you join one of the five Council sports centres this December then you pay no membership fees (just a £10 joining fee) until February 2016 – that’s 12 months membership for the price of 10.

The membership covers five sites across Calderdale; Halifax Pool, North Bridge Leisure Centre, Sowerby Bridge Pool and Fitness Centre, Brighouse Pool and Fitness Centre and Todmorden Sports Centre and it also includes the use of four swimming pools, over 150 fitness classes across all the sites each week and full use of state of the art gym equipment.

What’s more, if you have a specific fitness goal, fully qualified staff are with you all the way, to provide support and expert advice.

For more information or to sign up, visit www.calderdale.gov.uk/sportoffer or call in to any of our fitness centres throughout December.
