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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Information about the pool, its schedule, and its programs can be found on the Aquatics page of the JCC's website.
This pool is difficult to describe clearly within the space allowed in the database, so we refer you to a close-up view of its Google Maps aerial photograph HERE. After viewing the photograph, the following description of the set-up of the pools during short-course sessions will make sense:
"When the pool is set up for short course swimming, there are usually lane dividers in the unstriped lanes at each end, extending into the shallow and deep wells, creating five extra lanes each. These lanes are approximately 34-yards / 31-meters. During Masters swim, when the pool is set for short course swimming, these lanes are available for general use along with four standard 25-yard lanes."

Facility Reviews

This is a modern 50-meter facility with comfortable locker rooms. The set up changes from season to season from short course to long course.
The facility is modern, clean, well-staffed, and RELIABLE; I can actually count on their being open according to the schedule. All of the various membership packages are good values.
[January, 2015]
The pool is very clean and well-maintained. The layout changes from long course, length-wise (50m) to short course, width-wise (25y), depending on the day and time. It can go from empty to four swimmers per lane in a flash, especially when schools or classes are using some of the lanes.
