Aqua Vale Swimming and Fitness Centre, threw its doors open to offer a free family open day in partnership with Aylesbury Vale District Council and Total Swimming. The open day was attended by Olympic swimmers Steve Parry and Rebecca Adlington, who were excited to be visiting the centre for what turned out to be a fun filled day of activities for all.


Over 4,000 members of the local community arrived at the Everyone Active centre to take part in a range of free activities throughout the day including free family swimming and pool inflatable sessions as well as group exercise and personal training taster sessions, and use of the gym. Children were kept entertained all day with face painting and balloon modelling, there was something for everyone.


Olympians Steve Parry and Rebecca Adlington were in attendance along with a number of other swimming athletes who were hosting swimming demonstrations and activities, enjoyed by a number of young local swimmers and watched on by their families. The young budding athletes took part in Water Polo, competitive swimming, synchronised swimming and rookie lifeguarding. The athletes were also at the centre all day to interact with the local community, take selfies and sign autographs.


“What a great day we had on Saturday at Aqua Vale”, said Double Olympic Gold Medallist Rebecca Adlington. “So many kids were there getting autographs from all the Olympians and enjoying the water session. The kids all trying new different things from synchronised swimming to rookie lifeguard and they all had a great time doing it. The venue was fantastic. 3 swimming pools, the spin studio and gym. What a brilliant facility”


Aqua Vale Swimming and Fitness Centre also launched a brand new Indoor Cycling studio, with hugely popular taster sessions running throughout the day.  


“We are delighted to have welcomed so many of the local community to the centre on Saturday to enjoy some fun, free activities”, says Everyone Active Contract Manager Jodie Morris. “We were proud to have a number of amazing talented Olympians with us and we hope some of their motivation rubbed off on our visitors, especially the young talent.”
