David Lloyd Clubs - Hatfield

Hatfield, England, UNITED KINGDOM

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The last time I swam there (summer, 2007), I decided to swim in the outdoor pool. On entering the pool, I found myself face to face with a rather large rat. After quickly escaping the pool and retiring to the changing rooms, I returned to the receptionto discuss the problem. The receptionist at the time was very rude and explained that if I didn't want to use the private facilities then I could leave the premise. I decided to do so and have not returned.
Hatfield was once the flagship of the David Lloyd leisure clubs.

There are three pools: a 25m indoor pool, a 20m outdoor pool, and a small indoor children's pool. There is an adjoining spa area with sauna, steam room and large jet/whirlpool. Also gym and tennis courts etc.

The 25m indoor pool is overheated (29.6ºC). Half the pool is laned - there are three lanes with proper wave suppression barriers between each. There is rarely an issue with overcrowding: mostly one has a lane to oneself, sometimes a lane shared between two people, rarely more. When it is dark (e.g., early morning in winter) the pool is badly lit. If you are planning to have a heart attack, this will be the wrong time and place - there are no lifeguards on duty and other swimmers will not see you.

The club is very heavily used (large gym upstairs) and the changing areas are very shabby (for a private UK club) and long overdue renovation.
