Swimming is a good all-round activity that is great for the body and mind, whatever your age or ability. Regular swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and cardio fitness with low impact on the body. In our dedicated lane swimming sessions:

  • lane ropes are used to section off each lane of the pool.
  • you can choose from slow, medium or fast lanes so you can set your own pace.
  • the swimming pool is supervised at all times by qualified pool lifeguards who all hold the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification and attend regular staff training to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

Concessionary rates are also available offering a 40% discount off our full price.


Plus, if you attend more than once a week, we can offer even better value for money with our gym and swim membership!

Swimwear Guidelines

  • Items of clothing worn in the pool should ideally be designed for use in that particular activity. This means that anything which is deemed unsuitable and does not comply with the criteria below would not be allowed to be worn.
  • The clothing should not offend decency. This means that any items of a material which could go see through (for example boxer shorts or Bermuda shorts) would not be permitted.
  • The clothing should be made from a suitable material. This means anything which may become heavy when water is absorbed such as cotton should not be worn. Items such as this pose a danger to both the wearer and other users by restricting movement. Denim should also not be worn.
  • The clothing should be hygienic. Clothing worn for everyday use should not be worn in the pool, the items should specifically used for swimwear.
  • The clothing should be safe. Anything too baggy which may become tangled with limbs causing difficulties while swimming should not be worn.
  • The clothing should not pose a risk to the wearer or other users. Any items which do not meet the above recommendations should not be allowed in the water.
  • For religions which do not allow the wearer to reveal any of their body there are several items of clothing which have now been designed to be worn specifically by these groups, such as one piece costumes covering most of the body, arms, legs and head.
  • For wearers who wish to keep their head covered, an appropriate piece of swimwear should be used. This can be in the form of a swim cap, or other available garment which allows the user to feel comfortable, not compromise any religious beliefs and keep in line with any health & safety concerns. Items of headwear not complying with any of the other points should not be permitted to be worn in the pool.
