How long can I use the pool for?

Lane swimming is pre-bookable online for members or by phone for non-members. Sessions are 60 minutes long with the pool closed for a 30-minute clean down between each session. Every day, the pool will close for a longer period in the day for a deep clean. For rules on using the pool please click here. Please note-lane swimming is for competent swimmers only.

When will the leisure pool re-open?

The leisure pool will remain closed and only re-open in accordance with the government guidelines. At present it is advised that no slides or water features can be used. As the guidance eases, we will look to re-open the leisure pool.

Are you running the free swimming scheme?

The free swimming scheme will not take place until further notice due to the centres operating reduced capacities in order to maintain social distancing. We hope to re-instate the scheme in the new year if government guidance allows us to.

When will swimming lessons and other sports courses recommence?

These are under review currently, but we are hoping to restart these as soon as we can. Any credits for missed sessions will go forward to the next course dates.
