Vanderbilt Dayani Center for Health and Wellness


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 second reviewer recommends going to the Vanderbilt University Recreation and Wellness Center to swim in their 15 lane, 25y, 82ºF, multipurpose pool. To our knowledge, access to that facility is restricted to students, faculty, staff, and their accompanied guests, which is why it is not listed on the Swimmers Guide website.

Facility Reviews

It's a nice facility in the Vanderbilt section of town. The first swim is free, subsequent drop-ins are $10 a day. One lane is always reserved for laps. The water is kept very warm for recovering patients connected with the health and wellness center - and the chlorine was so heavy my teeth squeaked. I checked it out to add it to the database but this isn't for serious swimmers. Small but clean lockers and showers. Better to stick with Centennial for proper laps.

I called the center today; they said they don't have guest passes; their pool is only 3f deep; it has no gutters; they keep it at 88º; and it is not suitable for lap swimming. They suggested the Vanderbilt Wellness center nearby which is a great facility so I swam there.
