SWIMMING WITH BETTER

Swimming’s a great way to have fun and get healthy, whatever your age or level of ability.

At Wadebridge Leisure Centre we have a four lane 25m main swimming pool and a smaller deck level learner pool.

This means that when it comes to developing your skills, teaching your child, holding a party or just having fun, there’s never been a better time to take the plunge.

SWIM FOR FUN

At BETTER, we believe that swimming should be fun and exciting for all the family. That’s why you’ll find a wide range of fun swim sessions at Wadebridge Leisure Centre swimming pool.

From fun swims to aqua splash sessions, there’s something to make swimming fun for kids of all ages – and mum and dad too.

ENSURE YOU GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR FITNESS SWIM

• Pre Cleanse
Please help us to keep your pool clean by following our
Swim Hygiene guidelines by showering and using the toilet
facilities before you swim.
• Respect
People of different standards and abilities will use the pool. Please
respect their right to enjoy their swim.
 Speed
Choose your lane using the fast, medium and slow signs and by
watching those already swimming. Before pushing off at each
turn, check to see if anyone faster is approaching.
• Direction
Please follow the directional signs and move across to the
appropriate side of the lane for each length.
 Space
Try and leave at least 5 metres between yourself and another
swimmer and if it’s possible to see a pace clock, then a 5 second
gap is just as good.
 Strokes
Wide stokes such as butterfly and breaststroke should be avoided
when the lanes become busy. If you change to a slower stroke as
part of your session, think about moving lanes.
• Equipment
Fitness swimming training equipment, such as fins and hand
paddles, is permitted at the discretion of the lifeguard and based
on capacity. Snorkels can be used in conjunction with conventional
swimming goggles.
• Resting
Whether stopping for a rest or catching your breath after
completing your swim, please be mindful that others using the
lane will want to keep on swimming without stopping
• Share
Celebrate your achievements and share your swimming stories
