Come for a Swim

The pool is open! We've made some changes in-line with current Governement guidance meaning we are able to open the pool for lane swimming only. Because of this, there's some important information below that you need to know before you book.

Temporary changes to using the pool

As a temporary measure, we've reduced the number of lanes open from 8 down to 4 and introduced a 'lane etiquette' that you should familiarise yourself with before booking. 

To book, you must be a competent swimmer and be able to swim unaided for a minimum of 50 metres. When you book you will be able to book a slow, medium or fast lane which is explained in more detail in the Lane Etiquette page.

For the time-being, please arrive 5 minutes before your booking, ready to swim, ensuring you follow the directional signage throughout the building. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, we may need to manage the number of people using the changing facilities at any one time so please make sure you allow sufficient time to account for this and shower before arriving. Shower facilities are only available for a post-swim rinse.

To maintain the quality of the water in the pool, please ensure you shower prior to arrival and only use the shower facilities here to rinse when you finish your session. There measures are temporary and we hope to have things back to normal as soon as possible.

The pool changing facilities are located close to the poolside and provide w.c's, lockers and benches. Hairdryers are currently out of use. You'll need a coin for the lockers which is returned when you finish. 

Please take the time to read through the important COVID-19 page before arriving at the Sports Centre. Here you will find all the information you need to know about when using any of the Sports Centre facilities. 

We normally advise all customers to check the Swimming Pool Admission Policy before arriving at the Sports Centre. Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this policy may not reflect current circumstances.
