This Girl Can

If you have any questions or comments we'd like to hear from you.


"Our aim is to provide, maintain and develop a first class range of health, leisure and recreational activities and facilities to serve the local community and the surrounding areas."



At Maidstone Leisure Centre, we create a fun, safe and comfortable environment for women and girls of all ages and abilities to exercise and take part in activities.
This Girl Can is a celebration of women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it or how they look – it’s helping women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many from joining in.


This Girl Can Swim

A ladies only swimming session for all abilities – come along and join in our female-only lane swimming and fun activities such as volley ball and aerobics. We add up our lengths every week and are making our way around England!

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in – whether this is shorts and a t-shirt, leggings or your favourite costume. We are always available to help you with anything you need – from being directed to the changing rooms or helping with your locker. You can also bring your towel, robe and any valuables to poolside where we have baskets for your belongings.

Swimming is a great way to unwind and relax and has so many mental and physical health benefits. It is low impact and great for all abilities! So whether you are new to swimming, or have been swimming for a long time, we’d love to see you at a session soon!


Session Times:


10:30 - 11:30


20:00 - 21:00

Prices: £3.50 per session.
