There will be a slight increase in casual and concession entry fees for residents heading to Christchurch City Council’s recreation and sports centres from 1 October.
The increases come following the adoption of the Christchurch City Council’s Long Term Plan in June 2021, with Recreation and Sport membership, casual entry and facility hire prices reviewed each year as part of the process.
All fitness, pools and multi membership fees are remaining the same, while casual and concession fees are going up by small amounts.
Head of Recreation, Sports and Events Nigel Cox says the Council aims to keep increases as low as possible so residents can stay active and connected with their communities through high-quality services and facilities.
“The change reflects increased costs or inflation.”
There will also be a slight price increase to Tumbletimes sessions, at 40 cents per casual entry.
Mr Cox says there is some good news for Lyttelton residents that enjoy summer swims at Norman Kirk Memorial Pool following the price review.
“The cost of pool membership at the pool for this season will decrease from $160 to $140, while the end of season membership has dropped from $80 to $70.
“We are thankful to have the support of the pool members, helping clean the pool in February and March. Because of their efforts we are able to keep the price of the memberships down.”
