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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The 50m outdoor pool, which had previously been open only in summer has been converted to year-round operation.
In summer, the outdoor 50 metre pool is set up for lap swimming from 7 to 9 AM only; at 9 AM the lane ropes are removed and the pool is available for general, recreational (play) swimming. Admission and pass rates are the same for both pools.

Facility Reviews

There was adult lap swimming but only two lanes had lane lines. There were four or five people in my lane.
Swimming is OK when not crowded. There's a lane for 'fast breast stroke' and one for 'crawl'. The rest of the pool is used by slower lane swimmers.
Extremely crowded during afternoon lap hours, many people squeezed into the two lap lanes. Extremely turbulent in lap lanes (almost like swimming in open water!). Within walking distance of convention center. Great find for a tourist!
Only two lanes were available for lap swimming, so it got quite crowded. There was no lane etiquette or any guidance on speed/time for each lane. There were no pace clocks and the lane dividers were too loose so it kept catching toes or little fingers. I would not recommend this pool for serious swim training.
[July, 2015]
Like most pools in the Netherlands, recreational swimming is prioritised over lane swimming. The indoor lap pool is too crowded. The outdoor pool, however, is great for 50m lengths during the summer, and when the weather is not so warm (which is often!) the outdoor pool is not crowded at all.
[August, 2017]
The water in the 25m indoor pool has become so filthy recently that you can't see underwater from one end to the other. Add to that floating large bandages and balls of fluff. Not appealing. The price has gone up and water quality has gone down.
