Leisureworld - Churchfield

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 building and staff are very welcoming and there is a good atmosphere. There is a good standard of cleanliness, although repairs are needed for the locks to the changing and shower cubicles.

There is a separate kids' pool with toys and a waterslide, and the main pool has one lane roped off for lane swimming. When activities take place, the pool is divided and the lane remains in place. It is a nice facility but serious swimmers will do well to find a bigger pool with more lanes.
In the early afternoon on a Friday in December, one lane of the pool was roped off, but there were only eight or nine people in the entire pool, and only two in that single roped-off lane. The pool can be very full of students at certain times; the schedule on their web site indicates when pool is shared with other activities.

There is now a sign-up process, even for a single swim, which involves receiving an email confirming your sign up, be sure you have your phone with you when you go there.

The staff is friendly and helpful.
