Pro-Active Lifestyle Water Activities Club

  Who are we?

We are a group of people of all ages and abilities who meet weekly to have fun and enjoy the benefits of water-based exercises in a warm pool at St Audries Holiday Club.  We call ourselves PALS for short, because we are pals to each other.  We have been in existence for over 10 years and we have a lot of fun together.  

PALS is run by an experienced team of volunteers who hold all the necessary recognised qualifications and who are all trained in first aid specifically for water-based exercises.

Who Is eligible?

Membership of PALS is open to any adult from 18 to 80+.  We have members from as far away as Taunton and Dulverton and we welcome all new members.  
If you are in any doubt about your fitness, please consult your GP first, but be assured that we do accept GP and hospital referrals.
Because the buoyancy of water supports you and reduces the jarring on your joints, water work-outs are particularly good if you:
  • suffer from arthritis
  • have knee problems
  • have a bad back           
  • are overweight
  • are recovering from an injury
  • have heart problems

Who, Where and When?

PALS meets at St Audries Holiday Club pool on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 11.30am-12.30pm.

We have our own minibus to pick people up along the route from Porlock, through Minehead, Watchet and Williton. Those not on that route come by car.

Becoming a member

Membership of PALS is £20 per year.  You must be a member to benefit from the aqua-aerobic sessions.  The sessions cost £5.
