Weekend Swimming

Everything you need to know if your planning on visiting us at weekends!

Weekend Swimming at Hinckley Leisure Centre!

Every Saturday and Sunday we offer a range of swimming sessions from Fitness Lane Swimming, to a giant water based Inflatable Assault course!
The information below will sum up everything you need to know before you come to the Centre!

Band System

Please be aware that during weekends we operate on an hourly colour coded band system for both our pools. This is to ensure we can accurately monitor the amount of people in the pools at any one time.

Due to a high volume of swimmers at weekends, there may be times you are unable to swim in our community pool until space becomes available on the next session.

We have strict bather loads that must be adhered to at all times. This is for both the safety and enjoyment of our customers. Please listen out for lifeguard instructions of when your coloured band must leave the pool.

Supervision Policy

Our swimming supervision policy states that all under 8's must be accompanied by an adult at all times (both around the centre and in the pool). Each adult can be responsible for up to 2 under 8's.

Children over the age of 8 may enter the pool unaccompanied.

Please remember our Inflatable Fun session policy is slightly different. Please visit here for more information.

Car Parking

Our car park located on St Mary's Road is short stay pay and display car park. If you are a member or swimming lesson parent or guardian, you can use your green car parking pass to extend 1 hours parking up to 3 hours for 50p.

Remember, parking is FREE on a Sunday!

(You can also use the car park situated on Hill Street with your green pass - Old Co-op car park)


Please visit the bottom of our main website page for our timetable (If you require a printed version, please ask at Reception)

Different Sessions

We like to try to cater for all different types of swimmers at the weekends, so here's a run down of what to expect from each of our sessions!

Fitness Lane Swimming Adults - This is an adults only (or competent swimmers) session with a structured lane layout. Lanes will be sorted by speed and direction, so please keep an eye out for the lane you are in. You may be asked to move across by our lifeguards if the lane you are in is not appropriate for your speed.

Fitness Lane Swimming - This is the same structural layout as above, but for all ages. On a Saturday, this is shared with our Just Swim session.

Just Swim - This session is designed to run alongside the Fitness Lane Swimming. This is simply an open space in pool, designed for you to do whatever you want to do! This session is perfect for families!

Fun Splash - This is a session with no lanes, we will also provide foam floats and is therefore perfect for families wanting to play and have fun in the water!

Inflatable Fun - This is our water based inflatable assault course, this is ran every Saturday. Please see here for more information on this fun packed session!

**Please note, when referencing our timetables the following sessions are closed to the general public - Learn to swim junior (swimming lessons) and clubs.**
