Passport to Leisure

Applying for a Passport to Leisure

Passport to Leisure (PTL) is a free card that will entitle eligible residents of Nuneaton, Bedworth, Bulkington and areas of Exhall & Kerersley that come under NBBC, to free or discounted access to a range of sports and leisure activities.

As a PTL member, you will be able to participate in a variety of activities at the four NBBC leisure centres in Nuneaton and Bedworth, managed by Everyone Active, at a discounted rate of between 10 and 25% off, these include: swimming, gym, tennis, badminton and squash.

Free Activities

If you are aged 60 years and over, under 16 years old or under 18 years old and still in full time education, you will be able to access free gym use at Jubilee Sports Centre between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday and free public and lane swimming at Bedworth and Pingles Leisure Centres. Those individuals who are in receipt of certain benefits or allowances may also be eligible. Please see the Frequently asked questions below.

This is a fantastic way for our residents to be able to take part in sports and leisure activities as part of an active and healthy lifestyle.

All applicants need to complete an application form (in black ink) and return it, along with the relevant documentation (as detailed on the application form), to any of the Everyone Active managed Leisure or Sports Centres.

Proof of residence is also required for all applications (including children, detailing BOTH name and address). This could be a council tax bill, driving licence, medical card or utility bill. Your previous Passport to Leisure will not be accepted as proof of residence, neither will your birth certificate or passport. 

We are unable to return any supporting documentation so copies will be required. Please DO NOT send originals. Documentation will be checked and if eligible your PTL card will be available for collection from one of the above centres after 14 days. Please be prepared for a receptionist to take your photograph. If you are renewing your PTL, your existing card will be reactivated within 14 days. Please ensure that your email address is supplied where possible.
