Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

I swam twice at Rantakylän during a business trip to Joensuu. First off: Gentlemen, BRING YOUR SPEEDOs. This facility doesn't allow baggy swimming trunks; men have to have wear tight fitting, brief-style swimwear. This is a very clean facility. The water, though a bit cold, is clear and I couldn't smell or taste any chlorine. The showers are great and the sauna is fantastic. I have never had a larger or nicer locker than the one I got at Rantakylän.

Lanes 1 and 2 are for "slow pokes"; lanes 3 and 4 are for clubs and swim lessons; and lanes 5 and 6 are for semi-serious to serious swimmers. My only complaint is that when I arrived at 7 PM, lanes 5 and 6 were a bit too crowded, with nine people sharing the two lanes. But the crowd quickly died off and by about 8 PM, it was just me and one or two others. They had the flags up for those who swim backstroke; just another indication that swimming here is taken pretty seriously.

All in all, it's a pretty good swimming pool, and a great swimming pool, if you can come when it's not too crowded.
