Bag a Black Friday bargain with Calderdale sports centres

Posted on

Calderdale Council’s sports service is launching its first ever Black Friday offer, with the opportunity to sign up for 23 days of fitness membership for just £20.

The offer gives full access to all Calderdale sports centres from 1- 23 December, and includes:

 

  • 100+ fitness classes a week
  • Access to three swimming pools at Brighouse, Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden
  • Use of four gyms at Brighouse, North Bridge Leisure Centre, Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden
  • Free off-peak badminton
  • Free off-peak table tennis

 

The offer is valid on adult memberships and is available until Tuesday 30 November (membership will be activated from Wednesday 1 December). Visit www.calderdale.gov.uk/sportoffer to find out more and to join.

 

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Services and Communities, Cllr Jenny Lynn, said:

 

“There’s so much variety included in a Calderdale sports membership it’s already great value for money, but this December offer is an especially good deal. It means that for less than a pound a day you can access each of our four sites, as many times as you like, between 1 and 23 December.

 

“Each site has so much to offer, including expert instructors to provide tailored advice and encouragement. So whether you’re new to exercise, looking to reach a specific goal or just wanting to try something new – there’s support on hand and options for everyone.

 

“These short-term offers don’t come along very often, so it’s a real opportunity to grab a great deal and experience the facilities in our centres before deciding to commit to an annual membership.”
