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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The psycho-ward of pools; unkept and crowded.
I found this pool much better than Piscine Armand Massard. It was clean, the staff was friendly, and it wasn't that crowded (at 8 AM on a Sunday during Christmas season). I thought it was decently clean.
A good pool. The water is very clean, as are the changing areas. Some very good swimmers here as well. As with all pools in France, be prepared for a lot of people in the lanes. I've been there every day for a week and there's always room to swim.
I went there during the week mid-afternoon and only one and a half lanes were open for lap swimming. The full-length lane had at least eight swimmers and the half-length lane only had three. The dressing area was old but clean. The lockers were individual changing rooms but you had to shower in your bathing suit, as the lockers were in a mixed sex space.
[March, 2013]
The pool opens at 7 AM; when I got there at 6:50 AM, there was already a long line. You pay €3.50 to get a ticket that you feed into a machine to let you into the facilities. Then there is sitting area, where you take off your shoes. The locker rooms are on the sides; you need a €1.00 coin to lock the lockers, but you get the coin back after. The pool is up one flight of stairs, so it's best to use the locker rooms there. There are separate (but fairly open-area) men's and women's shower rooms. You have to walk through a puddle of stagnant water to the pool. One lane is divided into two halves, I believe it is reserved for classes. Two lanes on the other side are combined to form one fat lane. That lane seems to be for people who like to hang around the walls and chat or just to float around. I barely saw any swimming there. The other two lanes were for lap swimming. It's circle swim, but everybody is on their own pace and doing their own thing. To pass a someone, you have to swim in the middle of the lane and hope you don't get into a collision to overtake that person. Tapping the toes do not work here. There were at least 15 people in one lane. Lots of people hanging by the wall. Lots of craziness. One side is too short for flip-turns and there are no T marks at the bottom to indicate the approximate distance to the wall.
