South Ribble Leisure are supporting Sport England’s ‪#‎ThisGirlCan campaign and are providing women only swimming sessions at Bamber Bridge & Penwortham Leisure Centres for ladies aged 33 – 55 years old.
Women-only swimming sessions are all about getting in the pool and enjoying yourself.

In women-only swimming sessions there’s no need to be self-conscious or nervous as you’ll find a ready-made support network waiting for you.

Whether you’re looking to keep in shape or make friends, women-only swimming is a fun way to do both.

We’re installing new hairdryers and you’ll even receive a complimentary pair of flip flops to wear between the pool and the changing areas. If you want to leave some clothes or a robe on poolside, we will even provide baskets and hooks to keep them dry and secure.
