We are pleased to be able to open for swimming for members only in 2020.
In line with government guidelines some of our opening times and facilities have been stripped back to ensure the safety and welfare of staff and customers.
Our swimming is only available for those training for events or who enjoy long distance swimming.
You must be happy to swim 400m unaided (16 lengths of a standard pool).
You must be at least 18 years of age.
Our set up consists of two triangular courses set one inside the other, this is separated from the hire by a line of buoys.
These two Triangles are 800m and 400m
