The Swimming Pools
Our main pool is a 4 lane 25 meter pool in which you will find lane swimming, swim fit, swimming lessons and of course, fun swims too. The pool has a depth range between 0.9m and 1.8m and is heated to a comfortable temperature of between 29/30 degrees. It can also be hired out for children’s parties too.
At a depth of 0.9 meters, our learner pool is ideal for babies, young children and non-swimmers alike. It is open for fun swim sessions and swimming lessons. The learner pool can also be hired out for children’s parties.
Our swimming pools offer a range of different swim sessions to meet your individual needs including:
- Adult Lane swimming
- Adult ladies only swimming
- Public swimming (Open to all)
- Fun Session (with the inflatable)
- Family Swimming (Learner Pool)
An innovative session which brings fitness classes into the pool. A trained Swimfit activator will be poolside to discuss any goals you have and work with you on an engaging and active swimming workout programme.
