Family | Fun at David Lloyd Leisure

David Lloyd Leisure family and kids activities holiday club children swimming

With just a few weeks left of school and wall-to-wall sunshine right now, me and the kids are summer ready. And a family membership to David Lloyd couldn't have come at a better time. We descended en masse to discover what facilities are available to families and children. Turns out, quite a lot...

My kids came a little late to swimming but are now just as much amphibious as I am. So the main draw at our local David Lloyd leisure centre is the swimming. As well as the enormous indoor pool, with its sauna, steam room and whirlpool, plus separate kids splash pool, there is a 20m heated outdoor pool. Ding dong.

Already, we've been after school a few times to take advantage of this glorious sunshine and to get the kids a bit more practice. Predictably, they like to act like mini-grown ups, spreading their towels out on the loungers and soaking up some rays. They absolutely loved it.

But there's loads more we haven't yet discovered here...

Family activities at David Lloyd

I hadn't realised how much of a 100% family focused leisure club this is – instead, I'd imagined more of a gym bunny culture where kids were tolerated rather than given a royal welcome. There are so many activities for them to enjoy – tennis, movie club, circuits, as well as creche for the younger ones and personal trainers for the teens.

School holidays are catered for, too, with holiday club running every day. These sessions are really flexible so I'll be able to take advantage of just short stints if I have urgent bits of work to get finished, half day or full day bookings. Another thumbs up.

And the kids' area is fab - big activity rooms, cafe and soft play, all spotlessly clean and staffed by people who genuinely like children. I'm so impressed (and pleasantly surprised!).

We'll be documenting our family membership over the next few months, so look out for a post on setting some family fitness goals soon. Meanwhile, you can find us by the pool...

Fancy a look inside? We made a short film to show you around. Short because we were having too much fun to spend forever filming!

Do your kids love swimming? Are you a fit family? I'd love to know what activities make up your routine and how you manage to cram it all in - leave me a comment!

PS T's Swimfin is brilliant – you can get your own shark swimming float here!


More swimming

We are working with David Lloyd Leisure who have given us a family membership to try out. 
All words are our own.
