There really is something to offer for the whole family here

DL Kids

DL Kids sessions galore!

Our DL Kids programme has an amazing range of different activities that’ll keep your kids active, busy and very, very happy. There are 50 sessions each week and they are deliberately timed to coincide with group exercise classes, so you can work out while the kids play a sport or some games, or have fun doing arts and crafts. Plus, we have something different here. We’ve paired up with both Southend Rugby and Football clubs – they come in to coach our junior members. Your little ones will love it! 

Family and Kids at Southend

Our members tell us that the difference with David Lloyd Southend is that there really is something on offer for the whole family. It’s something that they just can’t get elsewhere in the local area – and it makes such a difference when spending time in the club as a family. It’s not just our DL Kids programme, but our F.I.T (Fitness Into Teens) sessions, plus the soft play frame we have in our DLicious cafebar. And, we run lots of events in the cafebar that are super popular with families. Every last Friday of the month we have a family fun evening with a children’s entertainer and a disco. Plus, there’s a quiz night every last Sunday of the month too – and it’s not just for fun, there are prizes too!
