swimming at Summerfields Leisure Centre

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.

we go swimming at Summerfield's Leisure Centre as a family most weeks. The kids love it, especially during the float sessions!


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 English summer. The pool boasts interactive water features that shoot out jets of water to entertain and increase water confidence in children. The whole family will enjoy the time spent together at Summerfields Leisure Centre.
