Piscine Roger Le Gall

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 facility is clean and employees are friendly. One of the six lanes was used for club training at the time I visited the pool (7 to 8 PM). Two were open for children and people learning to swim. The other three lanes were used by lap swimmers and not too crowded. The water temperature was not marked, but seemed good to me. All in all, it was a comfortable lap swimming.
This facility is in the vicinity of a number of educational establishments and (in common with many of the other fine Paris 50 metre pools provided by the City authorities) public access during school term times is very restricted. Also, there are no early morning sessions, meaning that if, like me, you like to begin your day with a swim, you will need to rethink your usual schedule. This pool is quite often used for competition purposes, thus further limiting public access. Check the facility website (which, from my experience, is always kept up to date) before a visit.

The facility rules follow the norm for France (use of Speedo-style costumes and swimming caps are obligatory; outdoor footwear is to be removed before entering the changing area). Changing areas are gender-specific (the men's one is very roomy): lockers are straightforward and rely on one selecting a four digit PIN code (no need to take a padlock or a coin with you, or to be encumbered with a key while you swim). There's plenty of space poolside for stuff that you want to keep with you.

This facility has a lot of club use. On my weekday afternoon visit, two lanes were reserved for club use. A further broad lane was marked for recreational swimmers, leaving two dedicated for lap swimming. Of these, one was dedicated for fin, paddle, and kickboard users; the other for those like me who just wanted to use their arms and legs. Both lane load and discipline were reasonable, although, somewhat annoyingly, a number of my fellow users felt the need to take a breather at the end of each lap. However, all in all, this was but a minor irritation: it certainly won't keep me away from the Roger Le Gall in the future.
