Captain Benbow Sees Pool Dyed Pink for Open Day

Over 1300 people flocked to Penzance Leisure Centre’s Open Day last Saturday to see the pool dyed pink!

The pool, which was dyed to celebrate ‘Race for Life’ returning to Penzance on Wednesday the 6th June, created a great deal of interest and excitement – especially for the Leisure Centre’s younger swimmers.

Captain Benbow from the Cornish Pirates was also in attendance, joining in with the activities and as ever proving popular with everyone.

It was non-stop fun all day, with free swimming in the pool as well as nerf wars, bouncy castle, badminton, table tennis, gym sessions, health suite and more to keep the whole family entertained.

Jenna Burn, General Manager said:

The team at Penzance Leisure Centre were thrilled to support ‘Race for Life’ in such a unique and popular way, for what was a highly successful Open Day.

Hopefully the striking pink water in the swimming pools has inspired everyone to get involved on Wednesday and show their support for all the runners taking part.

We have been inundated with requests to repeat the feat and will be planning to go bigger and better with our next Family Open Day when nerf wars goes to another level – and who knows what colour the pool will be?!
