Paralympian table tennis player Dave Wetherill has launched the Cornwall Card at Newquay Trampoline and Play Park. 

Busy with final preparations before travelling to Tokyo, the Torpoint-based athlete joined GLL Head of Service James Curry, Councillor Richard Pears and Centre Manager Chris Perry at the facility which first opened its doors to the public in July 2019.

Free to residents until 31 August 2021, the Cornwall Card offers up to 20% off non-member prices at all Better leisure centres in Cornwall. 

GLL is the not-for-profit social enterprise that operates under the Better brand and runs centres throughout the county on behalf of Cornwall Council.

James Curry, GLL’s Head of Service in Cornwall, said:

“At a time when the health and wellbeing of everyone in Cornwall is so important, we are delighted to be launching this discount card for local people of all ages. With the school holidays fast approaching, 20% off a swim, gym, or trampolining session should be very appealing to the communities we support.”

Savings range from £1 off a swim to £2.80 off a session in the trampoline park. Soft play sessions in Newquay and St Austell are also included.

Councillor Richard Pears, Portfolio Holder for Customers, said: 

“This is a great opportunity for residents to get back to enjoying the activities they missed during lockdown. Cornwall Council and GLL are committed to providing affordable activities for all residents and I urge people to take advantage of the Cornwall Card offer.”

To apply, visit www.better.org.uk/leisure-centre/cornwall or when visiting a centre. Cards will cost £20 per adult and £10 per child from 1 September 2021.

Activities can be booked up to 7 days in advance on the BETTER UK app and card holders have access to member-only activities and courses.
