Our Swimming Pool

Clapham Leisure Centre offers the best swimming pool in Clapham.

Our Main Pool is 25 metres long and its depth varies from 0.9 metres in the shallow end to a 1.52 metres in the deep end. The pool floor is also adjustable so these depths may vary from session to session. 

During our public sessions, 2 lanes are always reserved for Adult lane swim only. Check our programme below for more information about Swimfit and Swim for All sessions.

A Teaching Pool is also available right next to the Main Pool with 0.9m depth and used to recreational purposes and for all families.
