Piscine des Vernets

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 pool was very nice, very clean. The swimmers were very polite. At mid-week, late afternoon/early evening there were 3 or 4 people per lane. Highly recommended.
I swam there with a fabulous Masters swim team in the 50m pool. Bring your own lock or rent one. Showers are clean.
There are not always two lanes dedicated to training swimming. It’s very busy in the evenings, three or four people per lane is not standard. Swimmers do not follow pool etiquette.
This is a very large, clean but somewhat soulless facility. The water is a good temperature for serious swimming, circa 27º-28ºC. Half the pool was laned during our mid-afternoon Sunday visit; the lanes are relatively narrow. One lane was dedicated to anyone wishing to use pool toys (flippers, floats, paddles). The other lanes were not speed-designated. The result was a mixture of slow, medium and fast swimmers satisfactory to no-one. Pool etiquette was poor. Since it is a 50m pool, there is the possibility of overtaking part-way down the lane, something that is difficult in a shorter pool.
