Save money the next time you cool off at one of Tamworth Regional Council's six pools with the purchase of a season ticket or 20-entry pass.
Tamworth Regional Council Technical Officer Swimming Pools, Gary Johnson, said regular users of Tamworth City can make great savings on the standard cost of entry.
The entry fee for adults at Barraba, Kootingal, Manilla, Nundle and the two Tamworth pools is $3.60. Entry for children, concession card holders, spectators and school students is $2.60. (Children aged 2 and under are free.)
A 20-entry pass for adults is $56 or $36 for children, concession card holders, spectators and school students.
'For those people who visit a pool fairly regularly, a 20-entry pass is a good option and it offers a saving of just over 20 per cent – with the added bonus of not having to rummage around for coins to pay for entry each visit' he said.
'Unlike season tickets, 20-entry passes are not restricted to the owner, so other family members or friends can get into a pool too.
'They are ideal for school students for their intensive swimming weeks, preschoolers for private swimming lessons, and holidaying visitors.'
Season tickets offer good savings to local residents who swim at a Council pool, on average, more than twice a week.
'The overall savings depend on which pool you use, as the cost of season tickets varies but the more you enter a pool through the 25-week swimming season, the more you save,' Mr Johnson said. 'For example, with an adult season ticket for the two Tamworth pools costing $191 and a child's fee at $152, you are saving money if you use a pool twice a week or more'.
Season tickets and 20-entry passes can be paid for at Council's customer service centres at Barraba, Manilla, Nundle and Tamworth.
Season tickets can be bought using Direct Debit. Direct Debit forms can be downloaded from Council's website.
