swimming at Summerfields Leisure Centre

Swimming is a great form of exercise for the whole body. The swimming pool provides a great environment for warm up or cooling down after a strenuous exercise class or gym workout but is also a very effective exercise in its own right. The water provides additional resistance for your muscle groups to work against and supports some of your body weight reducing the strain on joints?

We run adults only lane swimming session between 12.00-1.30pm Monday-Friday and a timetable of lane and open swimming.

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.


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


Family swimming

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 teaching pool is 0.9m in depth and 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.
