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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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.
Pool 1 had no lane lines, the bulkhead was set at 33.5m; most swimming breaststroke - lane etiquette was not observed, defensive swimming was necessary.
Pool 2 had lane lines but was used for a children's swim school.
Exchange your ticket and health card outside locker room for a numbered locker key wristband. The locker room was clean, roomy, and had nice hot showers. Follow the steps through shower room upstairs to pool deck.
Be careful though as they kick you out of the water 15min before supposed times of closure.
Hand paddles are prohibited; pull buoys OK.
You cannot bring your things (water bottle, accessories) right on the side of the pool. You need to put them a bit far away in a dedicated area - therefore getting out of the water is necessary...
There are cheaper sessions are available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but they are very crowded. A grumpy life saver even forbade me from using a pull-buoy (madness!!!!).
The pool is divided into shallow water, slow swimmers, long distance swimmers, and fast swimmers. But nothing is respected and be prepared to see slow persons showing their old lady style-breaststroke in the fastest lane.
The lanes are so large that people don't respect normal "keep on the right" rules we see in the west, therefore be prepared to double and zigzag all the time. Like on local motorways.
