Each pool has different opening times and the programme will include swimming lessons and fitness classes which might restrict general swimming at different times. Please check the pool timetable first, to make sure you know when you can swim.
‘Swim for all’ or ‘Swim for adults’ sessions are great for those who don’t want to book their activity but just turn up and swim. You can find the pool timetable on the leisure centre webpage.
For swimming, it’s best to wear specifically designed swim-wear. For women, that’s a one-piece swimming costume, bikini, tankini or burkini. Fitted t-shirts and/or leggings worn under swimwear are also OK. For men: trunks, swim shorts, board shorts or fitted nylon leggings are a good choice.
If you intend to swim with your face underwater or concerned about getting water in your eyes, wearing goggles is a good idea.
Most of our pools sell a selection of swimwear and goggles at reception. You can also find them in most sports shops or online stores.
