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.

Is the pool the place for you?

Swimming is a really great way to improve your health and fitness as propelling yourself through the water works your body far more than exercising on dry land.

And to inspire you even more, here are 8 great reasons why you should try swimming according to the Amateur Swimming Association.

  • Full body workout
  • Great for general wellbeing
  • De-stresses and relaxes
  • Burns calories
  • Lowers risk of diseases
  • Supports the body
  • Increases energy levels
  • Exercise without the sweat

Let's get you started

You can enjoy swimming at a variety of sessions and fit them in to your weekly schedule either before or after work, during your lunch break, at weekends with the family or during the day. 

Check out our swim shop in reception for costumes, towels, goggles and lots of other brilliant swim accessories to help improve the enjoyment of your swim. 

If you find your place in the pool then you may benefit from a membership which could save you money.
