Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

They usually have five lanes set up for laps. At least two 50m lanes then three split with a bulkhead to make six 25m lanes. The water is nice.
There is usually a lane set up for finswimming (Nage avec Palmes) and sometimes lanes are reserved for swim clubs. One lane is reserved for water walkers and water runners. Fast swimmers can usually swim with in the finswimmers' lane without complaints. The pool is less crowded in the early afternoon or after 6:30 in the evening. There are usually many swim clubs in the mid-afternoon (4 - 6:30 PM) that take up most of the lanes, leaving just one or two 25m lanes for public lap swimmers.

Bring a two Euro coin to operate the lockers. The coin is returned to you when you insert the key back in the lock.

The pool has started to crack down on the fast swimmers swimming with the fin swimmers. Even when the lane is empty, they drive you out. Reasoning with them does no good. They are just doing what they are told. They have reduced the three-lane-wide area to two for the random swimmers, so there is always one 50m lane for 'Swimmers'. However, there is no definition for the 'swimmer' and anybody who can swim a lap, no matter how slow, is entitled to swim in it. The only requirement is that you swim circles.

Saturdays after 16:30 is usually a good time to swim when you can sometimes get a 50m lane to yourself until 18:30. At 18:30 a scuba club comes and takes away two lanes. After 19:00 and until closing at 19:30 the place is pretty empty.
