We're delighted to announce that the main (25m) Main Pool at The Stour Centre will reopen on Monday 26 July 2021.

We have a balanced programme of sessions for the coming weeks during the summer school holidays so everyone can enjoy the pool. The first session at 6:30am on Monday 26 July will be a normal public swim session including the recommencement of lane swimming. These will continue throughout the week in our 'Public Swim Sessions'.

Throughout the school holidays for our younger swimmers we have included new ‘fun splash sessions’ where we’ll be adding floats, balls and small inflatables to the session.

Wednesday and Saturday afternoons will see the return of our hugely popular Wibit inflatable obstacle course sessions which are amazing fun for the bigger kids!

From Sunday 1 August the centre will also be starting swimming lessons. The main pool will be used for the lessons while the small shallow pool and leisure pool are being refurbished. Anyone interested in enrolling in lessons for both adults as well as children please do contact The Stour Centre on (01233) 663503 (option 3) or email thestourcentre@freedom-leisure.co.uk.

update on leisure & teaching pool reopening

The re-opening of the main pool will see another milestone completed in the Stour Centre refurbishment project and the multi-million pound investment by Ashford Borough Council. Works will continue in the leisure and teaching pool area and although it is too early to confirm a definitive reopening date it is likely to be nearer Christmas time or early in the New Year before this will be able to re-open.

new play pool play features coming your way

Once the refurbishment of the leisure pool is complete, we will have some amazing NEW fun and exciting features that we're sure your little ones will spend hours playing and splashing with friends and family. Watch this space for more information soon.
