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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Quality, clean facility - a low chlorine 25m x 17.5m pool, usual depth 1.2m to 2.0m (though can be varied). I swim here most days a week as there is a high availability of 25m lane swimming (occasionally switched to widths during events). Slow, medium, and fast lanes are usually available.
A lovely pool to train in: good temperature, clean, excellent facilities. Usually pretty well disciplined swimmers, slow, medium, and fast lanes, although there's still a smattering of head-up breaststrokers attempting to infiltrate every lane. I'm sure a lifeguard would get them to move, if asked. My only complaints are that the lanes are a narrow, so it's not easy to pass, if there are too many slow people in your lane, and that every now and then they run intensive swim lesson weeks, which take out four lanes for a good few hours in the mornings - it pays to keep an eye on the website!

I swam here today and it was a really enjoyable swim. Lovely, spacious, clean, mixed changing rooms with some separate rooms for single sex changing. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I would use again.
