Arundel Lido opens its gates for the 16th Summer Season since being taken over by Arundel & Downland Community Leisure Trust, which is a Registered Charity.
2018 provided Arundel Lido with plenty of visitors, bookings and, best of all, numerous sunny days. Let’s hope for the same in 2019!
The 2019 season will start on Saturday 4th May with FREE entry for everyone from 10am. But if you can’t wait until then, you can join in with Five Seven Fitness for an early-morning Boot Camp from 8:45am! This session will be suitable for adults of all fitness levels to participate.
The day will also include a Retro Sports Day on the field for adults and children to participate in. This will be run by Arundel Lido volunteers and include classics such as a 3-legged race, sack race, egg and spoon race, tug of war etc.
Season Tickets can be bought in advance from the Lido or over the opening weekend to receive a £5 ‘early bird’ discount. The office is generally manned 9:30am – 4:30pm Monday – Friday, but please call in advance if you would like to pop in and pay, as staff attend off-site events, training sessions and meetings.
Exciting weekly activities to look forward to this season include: South Coast Mermaids, Inflatable sessions, Swimming Lessons, Boot Camp, Aqua Aerobics, Adult Only Swims and Parent & Toddler sessions (with Swim Lessons included!)
Active Academies will also be running 2 Swim & Run Camps during the school holidays, Raw Energy Pursuits running the Arundel Triathlon and Tuff Fitty hosting numerous training sessions for their members.
New for 2019 for one night only…The Great British Skinny Dip on Wednesday 3rd July from 7-9pm. This event is for over-18’s only and is a fundraiser to help with the cost of our new changing huts.
During the Winter, Arundel Lido has continued to seek funding towards Project LEAP through bids and events. The latest event was the Casino Royale Evening at the Hilton. Thank you for all the support on the night and thank you to The Enchanted Florist, Chris from Clarkes Estates and The Fantastic Pontastics for making the evening such a success. The event raised nearly £3,000 towards Project LEAP.
