Due to the situation with Corona Virus we are doing everything we can to limit human contact, because of this we are not offering a PAYG option in 2020.
For unlimited swimming we are charging £120 for the of the season.
If you already have one of our blue or orange bands please only make payment as you have already completed the registration form.
After payment the page may fail to redirect and display a 403 error - this doesn't mean the payment has failed!
If you are submitting multiple payments please leave a period of time in between, the system panics occasionally, it was built by an outdoor instructor.
Swimming will be open to new sign ups (those who don't already have a Blue or Orange band) from June 1st.
To swim you will have to book your slot, this is to ensure that we do not have too many people on site at once. It doesn't cross reference, so ensure you have paid and are a member, You can book here:
