Dip into our swimming bingo game for a fun-filled family activity!
Our pools may be temporarily closed, but you can still keep them close to your heart with our printable swimming bingo game! All you need is a hat to mix up the cards in and one designated Bingo Caller to help run the game for the other participants.
On your marks, get set, BINGO!
Bathtime swimming activities
Young children can quickly become uncomfortbale having water on their faces and can even lose confidence after being out of the pool for a while. With these simply, easy-to-follow activities, you can keep their confidence high so they can enjoy being in the water again when pools reopen.
Test your swimming knowledge with our crossword!
We're also pleased to be bringing you a swimming crossword, so you and the family can stay connected to the pool from home. Choose from well-known swimming terms and try and guess all the words in a fun-filled puzzle.

We’ve taken this much-loved board game and given it an Edinburgh Leisure twist! All you need is a dice and a space to move around and complete exercises such as jogging on the spot, high knees, planks and star jumps. To make it more interesting, we’ve added ladder challenges. You can do these with no equipment, but you can also use badminton racquets, footballs, shuttlecocks and tennis balls if you have them.
