Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

For India, BAC is a really excellent swimming facility, considered by many as the cradle of Indian Swimming. It’s definitely not an Expat swimming centre (outdoors, no gym, basic facilities etc), but it IS a well renowned within India, and has producedmany Indian swimmer of impressive caliber. The changing facilities leave a little to be desired. Overall, if you are a swimmer, and you come for the swimming, it’s excellent – you’ll be greeted like an old friend within a few days / weeks.
The teaching is good and comprehensive. There are swimming courses run in the Indian school summer holidays as well. And there are quite a few public sessions.
Junior water polo teams train on Sunday evenings, and are always looking for experienced players to help out and bring new techniques. They are in need of simple equipment, so, if you can, bring some hats, gum shields, etc. to help out. The Elite swim squad for national standard swimmers train daily from 5 AM, by invitation only.
