A bit about swimming
Swimming is a great way to stay physically active and we’ve got an activity for you, whatever place you’re into. You can maintain and develop your fitness with our lane swimming sessions, learn to swim whatever your age with our development sessions or just enjoy a splash around to stay healthy. And it could save your life.
The new Andover Leisure Centre has installed a Splash Pad by the learner pool, a great place for little ones to gain water confidence. Together with a new pool inflatable providing fun swimming sessions for all the family, view the swimming pool timetable for information on when the sessions run.
