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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

There is also an adventure (leisure) bath with two long slides, a warmer water beginners pool, saunas, massage, and a restaurant at this facility.
The 50m pool is competition-striped with long course lanes, but unstriped width-wise for short course operation. It is usually set up with long course lanes in the mornings and on Tuesday evenings, the rest of the time it is set up with lane ropes for about 10 lanes of width-wise 25 meter laps.

Facility Reviews

The pool and other facilities at this location were quite good. The only drawback was that when I was there they didn't have real lap lanes set up, but the other swimmers generally respected lap swimmers. Staff knowledge of English was limited.
I've been there over a dozen times and every time the main pool has been laned width-wise with about 10 lanes for lap swimming. Excellent facility!
The pool is set up with 50m lanes until 8 AM on weekdays. After 8, there are three 25m lanes for visitors, designated 'exercise', 'fast', and 'crawl'. There are more 25m lanes then, but your swim in any of those may be interrupted by schools.

I understand that Uppsala Swimming Club is the oldest swimming club in the world.
