LEISURE CENTRE CLOSURES
Following the Government announcement yesterday about the new measures being put in place to manage the Coronavirus outbreak, the Council has taken the difficult decision to close all leisure facilities from Wednesday 18 March 2020 until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor and act on the latest Government advice.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support. We hope to be back with you soon.

We love swimming and we love to teach children and adults to swim. It’s so rewarding to achieve this important lifeskill, but more than anything at BwD Leisure, we have great fun while learning.
Our swimmers take a journey through aquatics and develop a wide range of skills, following the Swim England Learn to Swim Scheme.
What is Learn to Swim?
The Swim England Learn to Swim Scheme is BwD Leisure’s swimming lesson provision for children and adults aged 3 years+. Lessons are available at Blackburn Sports and Leisure Centre and Darwen Leisure Centre at various times throughout the week with each lesson lasting 25-30 minutes.
Continuous Assessment Programme
At BwD Leisure we understand that every swimmer is an individual; our continuous assessment programme means that swimmers will progress through the programme at their own pace. Re-enrolment on our courses are generally every 8-12 weeks.
Learning through Fun and Games
A fun approach to learning is so important for chidren and adults alike. The easiest way to aquire the skills needed to be a confident swimmer is though fun and games.
The Swim England Learn to Swim Scheme takes this approach to learning to swim, giving swimmers the core skills needed to be a competent swimmer.
