Wild Card scheme

The Wild Card entitles 5-16 year-olds fantastic savings on lots of different sport and leisure activities across the borough as part of the Council's Holiday Activity Programmes, and those of the local Fusion Lifestyle leisure centres at Loughborough, Soar Valley and South Charnwood

In addition, your child can also receive discounts on any casual swimming sessions at all three of our leisure centres.

You may also be entitled to a FREE Wild Card if you are an adult with a disability, entitling you to discounted swimming at our leisure centres. Please contact Will Blanche (see details below).

The Wild Card is valid for one year from the day of purchase.

If your child lives or goes to school in the borough, the cost of an annual Wild Card membership will be £4 and this entitles your child to a 25% discount on the activities described above. However, if you, as the parent/guardian, are in receipt of certain benefits the annual Wild Card is FREE and your child is entitled to a 50% discount on the activities described above. 

Check below to see what type of Wild Card your child is entitled to. You can apply by calling the Contact Centre on 01509 634561 or by completing and returning the application form below (address on form):
