Helping Seniors Get Active

The health and wellbeing of Bunbury residents is set to benefit again.

People aged 80 years and over are eligible for free membership and entry to the South West Sports Centre. The centre is owned and operated by the City of Bunbury.

Fitness enthusiasts aged 75 years and over can enjoy a fifty per cent discount on membership and entry to the centre.

Seniors wanting to take advantage of the offer must have a WA Seniors Card.

Long-time South West Sports Centre member and octogenarian Des Parkinson visits the centre six days per week and has been a member for the past 30 years.

“I think the free membership is a wonderful idea and will encourage lots of seniors to take up the offer,” Mr Parkinson said.

“I would encourage fellow seniors to give the water aerobics and water walking a go.

“It is a very social environment and the staff is marvellous.”
