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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Nice pool, though the hours are a bit limited.
Really nice pool. All lanes were always lap swimming with everyone swimming circles. Good swimmers.
Be sure to call and confirm the pool's hours; the web site's schedule didn't match the actual hours. You pay for a 45 minute swim during what is a longer opening time.

Management was very helpful, although our Italian and their English was very limited. The pool was very nice but the air temperature and water were warm in July.

I swam at the 3 PM session on a Friday. It was not crowded. Wonderful swimming. Highly recommended.

Do not wear street shoes in to the pool; and do not bring shoes into the locker room. At this pool, shoes are left in a shoe room that is before the locker room. Shoes left in the locker room will be moved to the shoe room.

The pool operates in 90 minute sessions that may differ from the schedule shown on the website - be sure to call before going to avoid disappointment.

Rating: 8 on a scale of 10. It's a nicely maintained facility and well run, with a focus on everyone getting a good swim. The hours are definitely limited, but the pool is open seven days a week. There's lots of pressure on the schedule with teams and squads training. Breaststroke rules.
