Grove Swim & Sports Centre hopes to attract over 1,200 visitors to a free Community Open weekend running from January 22-24, 2016.

After a successful Community Open Day in 2015, Leisure & Culture Dundee, who run the centre, have decided to extend the offer to a full weekend of fun-filled activities. This year, they will be providing even more opportunities to take part and use the facilities – free of charge.

Over the three-day event there will be a range of activities and taster sessions available, including; Family Fun Swimming, Rookie Lifesaving taster sessions, Tayside Musketeers Basketball Games, Synchronised Swimming, Bouncy Castle, Bubble Football Fun, Badminton, Football and Youth Active Club.

Gráinne O’Reilly, Operations Manager for Leisure & Culture Dundee, said: “We want to give the local community a chance to try out the fantastic facilities at their local Swim and Sports Centre free of charge. It’s also a great opportunity for local community groups to promote the services they provide.”

The weekend events begin 6-9pm on Friday January 22 and continue on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 between 9.30am and 2.30pm

The centre is open 50 weeks of the year and has a 25m swimming Pool, large sports hall (suitable for 5-a-side football), small gym hall (suitable for badminton), large dance studio and fitness suite.
