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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I had an early afternoon swim on a Tuesday in early September. The staff was not very friendly and nobody speaks English. The facilities are old-looking, and the changing room and showers are run down.

The inside pool was not in use (no lanes) until I left, at around 3 PM. The outside, 50-metre pool was heated at around 28º. The water was filthy and only lanes 1 and 8 were available to the public (lanes 2 to 7 are reserved for various clubs throughout the day). I asked to borrow a kick board to no avail. There was no swimming discipline, but it's arguably hard to have, with only two lanes open to the public.

I was told to wait 15 minutes before going in, probably due to hygiene measures. I think one of the guards asked me to leave after an hour and a half (he tapped on his watch), but i kept swimming anyway.

It was a disappointing experience.
