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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 pool has an adjustable boom that allows for various configurations; according to its website, it is normally operated with three 50 metre lanes, seven 25 metre lanes, and seven 22 metre lanes, all at a two metre depth.
There is also a large, Subtropisch Zwemparadijs (subtropical swim-paradise) at this location. June, 2018 prices for that side of the facility were €10.30 or €9.30 for Senior Citizens.

Facility Reviews

The facility is divided into the "fun" pool (Subtropisch Zwemparadijs) and the "sport" pool. You get a chip arm band when you pay and that is used to enter the pool and for locking your locker. To lock the locker press the chip on the button on the locker. When it clicks, it is locked. If you forget which locker is yours, there is a chip reader that will tell you what locker you have when you hold the arm band to the reader. If you pay to use the fun pool, it is coded in your armband and you have to present it to a reader to get in the pool. When you leave the facility, you scan your armband and a little door opens up to take the armband and the gate is opened.

When I was there on a Saturday the place was packed and there were no change cabins available, when I was leaving. The shower area and toilet stalls are unisex/coed. There is a handicap restroom that no one was using even though there was a line for the toilet stalls. On this day, the whole change area was way too small for the business they were doing.

The sport pool was very nice with three, 50 meter lanes and twelve, 25 meter lanes roped off. The water was pretty clear and not too hot for lap swimming.

The kids did migrate over from the fun pool, but they seemed to stay away from the 50 meter lanes. Lap swimming was possible even on this busy day.
