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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Notes

The club was started in the 19th century by English rowers. It's now the dominant professional football team in Brazil. It has youth football programs and sponsors amateur Olympic-track, rowing, swimming, water polo, gymnastics, volleyball, judo and more. A two-tier membership system allows many income levels to participate in sports and health-club facilities. Classes of school children use the pool weekday mornings.
Both of the pools listed above are of recent vintage; the first, a Myrtha pool, was installed in 2015, the second was built by a local contractor in 2019. Both of the pools can be configured with ten 50 meter lanes or twenty 25 meter lanes, but the Myrtha pool (Pool 1) is usually set up for long course swimming and the other pool is usually set up for short course swimming. The club's original 50m pool was demolished after the first new pool was opened in 2015.
In addition to the two pools listed above, the facility also has a 25m x 7m, unstriped, tots teaching pool; a shallow, 17m x 13m, 6 lane, beginners lane swimming and teaching pool; and a large, irregularly shaped family and leisure pool.

Facility Reviews

They don't seem to like the idea of more than two people sharing a lane, which is great, never crowded, a pleasure to swim...

The change rooms have all been totally refurbished - everything new - but half of it dysfunctional on occasions. A professional cleaning firm now looks after all the change rooms, which is an improvement over earlier conditions.
