Our pool is 25 metres with six lanes, each with starting blocks and turning boards that can be installed when needed, ideal for competitions. There is plenty of opportunity to take part, whether you are student, family, or a member of our wider community.

Opening times for the facilities are subject to change due to activities taking place. Please check the opening hours page for up-to-date information before your visit.

Swimming lessons for children

The swimming pool at The Sports Centre is hired out to Total Swimming Academies (led by Olympic Medallist Steve Parry) who provide a range of lessons for children, from absolute beginners to those wishing to improve their stroke technique.

Lessons follow the Swim England Framework with a maximum of 6 children in each class, with teachers offering a wealth of experience.

Learners can benefit from teachers that are in the water, working with lower ability groups to develop young confident swimmers. Customers gain access to an online account to track their child’s journey and each swimmer receives their certificates and badges through a personalised mailing.

Secure your child’s place on the Total Swimming website.
