Happy 10th Birthday to Corby East Midlands International Pool

Release Date: 
Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 17:00

Corby East Midlands International Pool is turning 10 years old and you’re invited to join the celebrations!

On Wednesday 24th July, the swimming pool, one of Corby’s most loved facilities, will open its doors to host a coffee morning for customers during the regular 50m swimming session between 7-9am. For our younger customers under the age of 16 years old, FREE swimming will be offered from 9am-9pm. Drinks cups, beach balls and bags will also be handed out throughout the day on a first come first serve basis as a thank you from Corby Borough Council for making such good use of our fantastic leisure facility.

Throughout the day, swimmers and spectators will be able to view footage of diving on the big screen situated on pool side and there will be a display of photos in the foyer area to take customers through all the years of Corby Swimming Pool, including the old facility.

For those members who can’t make the celebrations, you can still be part of the milestone as all Leisure Member’s names will be placed into a hat for the chance of winning a FREE month’s Leisure Membership.

Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community, Cllr John McGhee, said:

“It’s hard to believe a whole decade has passed since the opening of Corby East Midlands International Pool, and what a successful 10 years it has had! We’ve had some big names walk through the doors, from Olympic Swimmers and world champions, to Her Majesty the Queen on her visit to Corby – but of course the real reason behind its success, is our loyal customers and members. It is with great pleasure to offer free swimming and goodies on the 10 year anniversary- it’s the least we can do to say thank you, as without you all, we wouldn’t have reached this milestone.”
