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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The swimming pool at Bowling has been specifically designed to provide improved facilities for users with impaired mobility. It has sloped access into the pool, and the water is heated to around 32ºC or 33ºC for extra comfort. Bowling also has a pool hoist and special parking bays.
NOTE: When we reviewed this listing in October, 2021, when lane reservations were required due to COVID, the pool's web page indicated that there were "Adult Only" lane swimming sessions on offer several times, over the course of the week. When we went to the booking website, the only lane swimming options were designated "Women Only".

Facility Reviews

Because there is only one lane available, lane etiquette goes out of the window.
The situation has improved; there are now three lanes: one for good swimmers, one for average, and one for the disabled or those with learning difficulties.
Unfortunately, having three lanes doesn’t stop people from stopping in the middle of the lane; doesn’t keep non-swimmers out of the ‘good swimmers lane’; and doesn’t stop people from swimming in the wrong direction. Lifeguards see but do nothing.
