Sport and Health
Helping to create a healthier, more active city.
Swansea has numerous leisure and sport centres located across the city. All of our large sports and leisure centres are managed by our partner Freedom Leisure who offer a wide range of activities, facilities and membership options.
The National Exercise Referral Scheme (NERS) allows health professionals to refer inactive patients with a variety of medical conditions to a short- term, supervised programme of physical activity at a local venue.
We run a number of Royal Life Saving Society National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) 8th Edition courses to equip people with the right skills to apply for jobs like pool lifeguards and leisure attendants.
Walkers are spoilt for choice in Swansea and Gower. There is everything from level promenades and parkland for an easy stroll to more strenuous hikes over beaches, moorland and through ancient woods.
