Swimming at Chard Leisure Centre

Swimming is a great activity for the whole family to participate in together. All ages and abilities can enjoy splashing around and practicing the life skill of swimming.

Did you know? - A gentle swim can burn over 200 Kcal in half an hour and regular weekly swimming can lead to improved sleep patterns & lower stress levels.

Our pool programme will aim to provide opportunities for everyone to participate whether you want to swim lengths, swim with the family or learn to swim for the first time. 

our main pool

The pool at Chard is 25 metres long. The programme will be a balance of sessions for everyone. We'll have early morning sessions which will have lanes to suit every swimmer depending on how fast or slow you want to swim.

our teaching pool

Primarily this pool will be used for children and adults who are learning to swim. We will have a highly experienced and professional team of swim instructors that will teach children and adults using the Swim England Framework.

aqua classes

Not only are aqua classes very good for toning and general fitness, they are also great fun and you'll meet like-minded people at every class.

We'll have a programme of classes at times convenient for you. Our team at Chard are putting the finishing touches together to the programme which will be available very soon.
