We have a 25m x 10.5m traditional swimming that offers a quality swimming environment.
The versatile pool caters for every need from fun swims (complete with various inflatables), casual swimming, 60+ only, adults only, public swim session and lane swimming to all the excitement of competitive galas, canoeing, snorkelling, lifesaving and water polo.
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.
At 25metres long and ranging in depth from 1.0 metres to 2.0 meters it provides five lanes for distance swimming. Availability for hire for parties, swimming galas and competitions.
