Junior Gym Sessions

Junior Gym Sessions are back at East Ham at the following times:
Wednesdays and Fridays: 4pm - 6pm
Saturdays: 2pm - 4pm


Following on from the success at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Poolpods are now available in Newham. activeNewham have been lucky enough to received funding to create inclusive swimming environments for people with long-term health conditions, disabilities and rehabilitation needs. The London Marathon Charitable Trust has provided a £750,000 grant to allow Swim England and its partners to enhance the swimming provisions across 20 community pools across the UK. Poolpods are available to use at East Ham and Newham Leisure Centres. Poolpods offer a variety of benefits, ensuring independent and dignified access for activeNewham customers with pool-side struggles or disability restrictions when entering and exiting the pool by the traditional method. Poolpods are operated by a wristband, which is used to activate the pod on pool-side arrival, and while in the pool. This removes the need to require staff/carer assistance. Fitted with an automatic safety door and seat belt, this protects, reassures and makes the user feel comfortable they are safe from any possible falling danger while in the pod. If customers have any concerns or require further pool-side assistance to operate pool pod, there will be an elected member of staff near-by to help and support them with their needs. For more information on Pool pods, please see the Swim England website .
