After it’s recent extensive refurbishment, Fox Hollies Leisure Centre in Acocks Green, Birmingham is opening it’s doors for a fantastic weekend of family fun. Join us on Saturday 15th July for a whole host of activities for all the family including swimming, gymnastics, junior tennis and more.
We visited the leisure centre last weekend for a look around and was really impressed with the facilities. Shilts wants to get in the gym with equipment galore, Olly loved the splash session in the swimming pool and I was keen to try the virtual spin sessions with vibrant lighting and club music!
I remember visiting Fox Hollies back in the 1990’s with my Grandparents and it holds wonderful memories for me of us all swimming in the pool in the school holidays. Since then it’s changed quite a bit and the facilities are brilliant for families.
Fox Hollies want to show off their new-look facilities and and are inviting you down for a day of family fun. There’s a full programme of entertainment and free taster sessions at Fox Hollies between 8am and 5pm, with something for everyone to get involved in and enjoy.
Family Fun Day – for the young ones
Have the children ever fancied trying out gymnastics? How about a game of junior tennis or perhaps football is more their game? There’s free taster sessions on for them to try out the activities. There’s also opportunities for them to meet their favourite characters including Minions, Frozen, Disney Princesses and Spider Man between 10am – 1pm.
There’s Mask of Art Face Painters between 9am – 2:30pm so your little ones can be transformed into their favourite characters too as well as a bouncy castle and balloon modelling throughout the afternoon.
Claim your free family swim
Throughout the afternoon there’s character splash swimming sessions (between 1:30pm – 2:30pm and 2:40pm – 3:40pm) and having been to the pool last weekend for a taster, the children will absolutely love it. Think floats, music, a bouncy castle on the water. Such fun to be had!

Not just for the kids
Adults can get involved in the fun too with free 20 minute taster sessions of virtual spin which looks so much fun, group fitness, body pump sessions and more. If you’ve ever fancied trying something out but never had the chance, here’s the opportunity to try it out for free!
