Tumbletimes is a casual session designed for babies and preschoolers to explore their capabilities at their own pace in a fun, safe and social environment.

All Council facilities closed – COVID-19 updates

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.

To ensure the safety of all our customers, we are implementing additional cleaning of equipment between sessions. Due to activity scheduling around these cleaning measures, Tumbletimes at Graham Condon has been cancelled on Tuesdays and Fridays. An additional Tumbletimes session will be held at Cowles Stadium on Tuesdays from 9.30am to 10.30am.
