Swimming pool at Edge Hill UniversityThe Pool is 25 metres with six lanes, each with starting blocks and turning boards that can be installed when necessary, ideal for competitions.

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.

The Sports Centre hires the pool out to Total Swimming Academies who provide a range of swimming for children, from absolute beginners to those wishing to improve their stroke technique. Find out more about Total Swimming Academies’ swimming lessons.

Opening Times


We have to limit the numbers in pool and provide specific lane swimming sessions in the short term. To swim you will need to book your session via our Online Bookings.


During this phase of the Centre’s re-opening following the coronavirus closure, we are operating the pool for members who have pre booked their swim session only. There are therefore no swimming pool timetables being published at this time. For further details of when members can book to access the swimming pool please visit our opening times.

Please note that the Health Suite (steam & sauna) will remain closed during the sports centre first phase of re-opening following the closure brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
