Everyone loves a dip in the pool in summer, and one of the city’s newest places to get splashy is Hough End Leisure Centre. The purpose-built centre opened at the end of June, just a stone’s throw from Withington tram stop. Facilities include a 25m six lane swimming pool as well as a ‘learner’ pool. Swimming is a big thing here, with sessions for adults, women, over-50’s, children, parent and child, after school clubs, water-based exercise classes and swimming lessons. Other facilities include a state of the art sauna and steam room, squash courts, a studio for fitness classes and baby and toddler clubs, and a gym. If you are 60 or over and a Manchester resident, you can swim for free, as can accompanied children under 16 during the school holidays.
