Our Swimsmart membership offers flexible payment options, quality instructors and unlimited access to our pools outside of lesson times to help your child be confident and safe in and around the water.
We’ve closed all of our Council facilities until further notice, to support the Government’s fight against COVID-19.
This includes pools and recreation centres, libraries, service centres, community facilities, the Christchurch Art Gallery and all our visitor’s centres in gardens and regional parks.
It’s important to proactively look after our mental and physical wellbeing. Whilst our centres are closed you can join us for workouts from the comfort of your living room. Join our daily Facebook live fitness classes.
All payments have been automatically frozen for all members (pool, fitness, multi, and Swimsmart) including direct debits. Expiry dates on concession cards will also be extended.
Please take care, be kind to yourself and others.

Managing your Swimsmart membership
You can freeze your Flexi Swimsmart membership for a minimum period of two weeks and a maximum period of four weeks per freeze, not exceeding eight weeks in total over a 12-month period, by completing a membership freeze form.
Flexi memberships can be cancelled after 3 months of active membership. You will need to complete a membership withdrawal form available from at any Recreation and Sport Centre.
Fixed-term members paying in bulk will not be able to freeze, with the exception of medical reasons if a medical certificate is supplied. Fixed-term memberships can only be cancelled if you are moving outside of the greater Christchurch area (proof required).
