Swimmers must arrive “beach ready” with swimwear on underneath their clothes, this will reduce the amount of time spent in the changing rooms prior to swimming. Showers will be available post swim; however, we do recommend that swimmers reduce the amount of time spent in the showers after swimming. Swimmers must take into consideration that they are only permitted to be in the building for the duration of their booking.
Three double lanes will be available for swimming, these will be clearly marked as slow, medium and fast. You may be asked to change lanes if the lifeguard feels your speed is not appropriate for the lane.
Social distancing must be followed at all times, there is a maximum of six swimmers per double lane or two per single lane.
No overtaking is permitted, before pushing off at the end of each length please check if a faster swimmer is approaching. If allowing a faster swimmer to go ahead, please move to the outside of the lane to ensure social distancing can be followed.
Should you need to take a rest between lengths, please ensure you rest at the edge of the lane and turn so you are facing away from any other swimmers who may be approaching the end of the length.
During 1400-1700 on weekdays & 1200-1600 on weekends the fast lane will be reduced down to one single lane to facilitate private lessons taking place, the maximum number of swimmers in this lane will be reduced to two people.
Family only swimming will take place 1100 – 1300 each weekday and 1100 – 1200 at weekends, two families (maximum of four people per family) permitted per double lane and social distancing must be adhered to at all times.
If your family exceeds four people, please book two slots.
Swimming butterfly is not permitted at any time.
Swimmers should stay hydrated by bringing their own prefilled water bottle onto poolside.
There will be no equipment available to borrow, however swimmers are permitted to bring their own equipment (Kickboard, pull buoy, goggles and swim hats) Any equipment must be clearly identifiable as the swimmers own.
