Swimming at Rainbow


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

At Rainbow Leisure Centre we have 2 swimming pools for our customers to enjoy.  We have a 6-lane 25m swimming pool and a smaller teaching pool.  So 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 at Rainbow.

We have a dedicated swim school, where we offer a wide variety of swimming lessons from entry level and parent-and-child sessions, right up to competitive swimming and rookie life saving.  Our experienced, qualified and passionate swimming teachers follow the Amateur Swimming Association's National Learn To Swim Teaching Plan, so you can be sure that you'll be in safe hands in the water.


Help Us Keep Your Pool Clean

  • Shower thoroughly from ‘top to toe’ with soap before entering the pool to remove deodorant, cosmetics and perspiration
  • Use the toilet facilities before your swim and remember to wash your hands thoroughly with soap
  • Babies should wear tight-fitting waterproof baby trunks whilst swimming rather than nappies
  • Please dispose of nappies, trunks and sanitary products in the bins provided
  • Do not swim if you have consumed a meal within the last two hours
  • Never swim if you have consumed alcohol or are under the influence of drugs
  • Do not swim if you are currently suffering from a cold or flu
  • Do not swim if you have suffered from food poisoning or diarrhoea within the last 14 days
