Swimming at Gwyn Evans

Swimming is a great activity for the whole family to participate in together. Have fun splashing around and practicing the life skill of swimming, a great way to cool down on hot days or to escape the rain during the traditional British summer.

General Swimming

A gentle swim can burn over 200 Kcal in half an hour. As water is 12 times as dense as air, swimming is a far more effective way of toning your muscles than any other form of cardiovascular exercise that you can do on land. Swimming can support up to 90% of the body’s weight in the water, meaning that those with disabilities, injuries or illnesses like arthritis can take part in a comfortable and safe environment. Swimming will help your wellbeing. 30 minutes of swimming 3 times per week have also seen improved sleep patterns & lower stress levels.

The swimming pool is a standard 25m x 9m rectangle pool, that is indoor and heated to 29ºC all year round, making this the ideal venue to bring the family.  The swimming pool caters for public swimming, fun sessions, swimming lessons and clubs

If you are looking to get fit, without putting to much pressure on the joints, why not take advantage of the clean and friendly environment provided by the staff at the Leisure Centre.
