Rye Sports Centre swimming pool

Because water is about 800 times denser than air, you can work harder, and burn more calories!

Swim England

Here at Rye Sports Centre we have a 25m swimming pool which is great for a range of activities for fun, fitness or relaxation for you and the family to enjoy. 

The benefits of swimming and water-based activities are endless. If you are looking at the health and fitness benefits it is great for both getting fit and losing weight, because they offer both cardio and strength workouts. Not to mention the fact the water supports the body, making it low impact –  ideal for rehabilitation and stress management. Did you know that swimming can burn up to 200 calories in 20 minutes?

There are unisex changing rooms with individual and communial showers and a traditional sauna located on poolside which is free to members.

We have put together a considered timetable for the pool including lane swimming, family swim sessions, swimming lessons, water-based exercise classes, themed splashdance events and supporting local schools with swim time.

Pool Admission Policy

All children under 8 must be accompanied and supervised in the water by a responsible adult. An adult may only take responsibility for a maximum of two children under the age of 8 years. The accompanying adult must be either the child's parent or an adult aged 16 or over and must actively supervise the child/children in the pool. Children under 8 years who are weak or non-swimmers must wear approved buoyancy aids or will need to be supervised by an adult on a ratio of one to one.

Children 8 years and over are welcome to swim unaccompanied during open swim sessions but guardians must consider the child’s swimming ability before leaving them unattended.
