Revised charges at a group of West Norfolk leisure centres go live from Monday.
Alive Leisure is bringing in new prices for activities at its centres in King's Lynn, Downham Market and Hunstanton.
Documents sent to edp24 prior to the changes being officially announced stated that parents would be charged £2 for children aged between one and three, while adult swimmers would pay £6.50.
But the new brochure states swimming remains free for children aged under-three, while junior swim will cost £3 at St James's Pool and Alive Downham Leisure, and £4.65 at the Alive Oasis, in Hunstanton. Junior swimming charges will be extended from under-16s to under-19s under the new structure.
Over-19s will pay £4.99 to swim at St James's Pool and Alive Downham Leisure, and £5.99 to swim at the Alive Oasis.
