Jan 2010Dawlish Leisure CentreWhy are swimming lessons not included in the All Inclusive Membership - it is misleadingThe All-Inclusive membership covers virtually all activities available at Teignbridge District Council operated leisure facilities, and represents incredible value for money, but there are a few exceptions and these include adult and junior swimming lessons. 

In order to include these activities the membership cost would need to be increased considerably.  This would be unfair on the high number of members that do not wish to partake in swimming lessons.

The website has been updated to avoid confusion.
