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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This site works best when its users take an active role in the maintenance of the data.
At the facility’s reception desk, you will be given a chipped wristband. Use this (a) to pass through the turnstile, (b) to open and close the locker of your choice in the locker rooms, (c) to pay (unusually in my experience, customers are charged as they leave by reference to the amount of time that they have spent in the facility), and (d) following payment, to exit through the turnstile.
The facility has both conventional open gender-specific locker rooms and – for those requiring a degree of privacy – individual cubicles with separate dry and wet side doors.
At the time of my two visits (6.30 AM), the 50 metre pool had one, single, roped-off lane for instruction. All of the many users of the rest of the pool were lap swimming, deploying all recognised and a few unrecognised strokes, at a variety of speeds from good club standard downwards. Despite this, the pool was unlaned. In the absence of any management-imposed rules, individualism rather than self-regulation was the order of the day, making for a somewhat hazardous experience! While I completed my usual daily 1,000 metres all, barring about 200 metres, was by heads-up breaststroke. Most other users responded in the same manner. I really hope that the management will take the simple step of laning up the pool and introducing some sensible lap swimming rules. Some poolside lifeguard presence would also be reassuring. By all means visit, but if you think that you’re going to get a good ‘fly workout, think again.
