Youngsters are being encouraged to be inspired by the Olympic Games and use the free Richmond leisure and youth card for all their sporting activities this summer.
With the Games about to commence, young residents can access any one of the borough’s seven local sports centres at a bargain price with the card. Many Olympic sports are on offer with £1 swimming, tennis, and basketball sessions. Cardholders also get up to a 10% discount on all courses and classes.
Cllr Pamela Fleming, Richmond Council’s Strategic Cabinet Member for Community, Business and Culture said:
“I encourage all our young residents to get into the Olympic spirit and take up a new sport. This card means young people can get a great deal on the many sporting activities available in the borough. There’s something for everyone and with the Olympics on our doorstep there’s no better time to get active.
“The real legacy of the games should be a generation of young people taking up sport and hopefully this card will give them a head start.”
Anyone aged 0 to 19 years, up to 25 years with a disability, can sign up for a free Leisure and Youth Card. You must either live, work, go to school or be registered at a youth club within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to be eligible. For more information visit the Leisure Card page.
