Booking a swimming session
Gedling Leisure Card holders and Members can book swimming sessions up to 7 days in advance via the app, online or by calling the relevant leisure centre. If you do not have a Gedling Leisure card or Membership, you can only book on the day of the session. Booking your swimming session in advance is recommended, however you can also just turn up to swim (subject to availability).
You can now link your online account with members of your family (children and adults) to make bookings on their behalf. Find out more.
Some swimming sessions are included in our DNA and Xtreme membership packages, see below. View our price list for costs of swimming sessions that are not included in our memberships and the rates for pay as you go customers (including customers without a Gedling Leisure Card).
