Free pool entry for Campbelltown seniors

Grab your swimming costumes, seniors, because Campbelltown Council is offering free pool entry during this year’s Seniors Festival.

Campbelltown seniors will get free access to pools and fitness classes from February 13-24.

Fitness classes at the region’s aquatic centres – Gordon Fetterplace Aquatic Centre in Eagle Vale, Macquarie Fields Leisure Centre and Macquarie Fields Fitness and Indoor Sports Centre – include gentle exercise, aqua fitness and pilates.

Exercise machines and certified instructors are also available to provide assistance.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic encouraged local seniors to make use of the free offer.

“As all of us grow older it’s important to pay attention to our health by getting the right level of exercise,” he said.

“This is an opportunity to try out our health facilities for free and make them part of your plan to improve your lifestyle.

“It’s good for both the body and mind, helping to reduce illness and improve your mood.”

All leisure centres are wheelchair accessible.

To be eligible for the free seven-day pass, locals must be over 60, an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islands over 50 or someone over 50 with a lifelong disability. Identification is required.
