Family fun at Virgin Active | Virgin Active blog
At Virgin Active, we’ve got fun for the whole family. From swimming to tennis and gym sessions to parties, you’ll find everything to keep you and your children entertained throughout the summer and beyond!
Swim together in our family swim lanes open from 9am – 7pm in all our Family clubs
What’s more, you can also book your child for a Shark Test if they’re 8 years old or above so they can swim in the Family Lane unsupervised in club. That leaves you plenty of time to enjoy a Group Exercise class, gym or Personal Training session!
Is your child 10 years old or above? Do they want to start using some gym equipment? We hold inductions for juniors to get them confident in our clubs. We have inductions for juniors aged 10-14. When your child turns 10, 12 or 14, they'll need to do another induction which unlocks new equipment and may allow your child to work out unsupervised in the gym.
To find out more, contact a member of your club’s reception.
Summer Junior Crash Courses
The summer holidays are the perfect time for your child to learn something new. Get ready for holidays at the beach or prepare for Junior Autumn term. Sign up your child for a 3 or 5 day course.
Junior swimmers can enjoy 30 minute lessons each day and will focus on skills like developing water confidence or stroke technique.
Junior tennis players will enjoy 1 hour sessions to perfect technique or learn the basics.
