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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Contrary to earlier reports, we are informed that a "health certificate" is still required at this facility. The cost is 6 yuan (RMB). Per one swimmer: "You are given a small booklet to fill your name in and note down an "emergency contact" number. The only question we go asked is if we had swimming caps. The certificate is re-usable in other public pools." [January, 2019]

Facility Reviews

Open to the public 3:30 to 6:30 and 6:30 to 9:00 P.M. daily
Pool 1 had no lane lines, the bulkhead was set at 33.5m; most swimming breaststroke - lane etiquette was not observed, defensive swimming was necessary.
Pool 2 had lane lines but was used for a children's swim school.
Exchange your ticket and health card outside locker room for a numbered locker key wristband. The locker room was clean, roomy, and had nice hot showers. Follow the steps through shower room upstairs to pool deck.
The 50m pool is never set up for long course laps: there is always a wall dividing it into two tanks, a 30m pool and another, smaller, 15m pool. People swim everywhere, spit in the pool, have a chat while obstructing other swimmers, all while the lifeguards watch their phones. Use of paddles is not allowed: that is deemed "dangerous". The best time is around 18:30 and 19:00. [March, 2015]
This pool is not suitable for any serious swimming / lap swimming. Everything leading up to it was promising: The pool is located on the 6th floor of a big "sports complex" building. There's a big clean reception area and good changing rooms with decent showers. Getting health certificate was just a matter of paying six yuan, writing my name, and providing emergency contact details. The pool itself, however, was divided into two sections with no lanes, which I found out is always the case. The biggest problem is complete lack of any swimming etiquette. Everyone just swims in random directions, whichever way they want with zero regard for others. It works for the locals, who seem to be fine weaving in and out of each others' way. Most swimmer are fairly slow. So for anyone who is looking for an uninterrupted, well paced lap swim, this pool will be a waste of time.
