Just Swim (Public Swim)

Our just swim sessions are public sessions where the whole pool or area of the pool dedicated to just swim will be left open with no lanes in place to allow swimmers of all ages and abilities to enjoy the water. It’s ideal for people that want to come in and just play around in the water for fun.

Early bird and lunchtime lanes sessions are public sessions for people that want to swim lengths of the pool. No matter your ability, if you want to swim for fitness or simply for pleasure this session is perfect for you. This session will include half the pool separated into individual lanes, with lane direction and speed signs ,the other half is left open for people that want to swim lengths freely or want to swim side by side chatting and socialising while they swim.

Inflatafun sessions

This highly fun and exciting session includes our large pool inflatable. Children aged between 8 and 15 years of age can take on the challenge of the inflatable tackling the different obstacles as they try and reach the end. While the children take on the inflatable itself, younger and older swimmers can enjoy the rest of the pool which is left open for people to use freely.

Golden Group Swim

Golden group swim is typically aimed at people aged 50 years but it would be rude to check your age so if this is a session you would feel comfortable to attend then just come along. The pool is left open so you can swim side by and socialise as you swim your lengths if you want to.

Ladies only, is what it says, and is open to any ladies aged 14 years and over. The pool is left open so you can swim side by and socialise as you swim your lengths if you want to.

This session is perfect for introducing babies and toddlers to a swimming pool environment. Open to children that are under 5 years of age that have yet to start school. We encourage parents to take babies and toddlers to one of these sessions before enrolling them into baby dipper or little dipper lessons.

Aqua Aerobics

We run a variety of aqua based exercise classes all ranging in intensity level so if aqua is your thing then check out our activity time table.

Moonlight Swim

The Moonlight Swim session is exactly as the name would suggest, the lights are turned down low and music is played to create a more relaxed and ambient atmosphere. There are no lanes in place as this session is designed to be unrestricted and sociable. This session is for adults aged 16 years and over only and includes the bonus of free use of the onsite sauna.

Mermaid & Swim Fin

During this session a large section of the pool will be designated purely for people wanting to use Swim Fins, Monofins and Snorkels. This is a great session to keep up interest in snorkelling whilst the sea is colder during the winter months. Please note that any equipment is to be supplied by the customer.

New Sessions

Just Widths

Want to make your swimming more intense? Or are you just getting into swimming and want to make it more progressive? Why not try out our just widths sessions where instead of swimming lengths of the pool swimmers swim the width of the pool. This can make swimming more progressive or if you turn up the speed can hep you take Hiit training into swimming.

Just Polo

This high intensity game is great fun, so you won’t even notice how hard you are working while playing. The aim of the game is to shoot and score goals against the opposing team. It’s not a coached session but there will be a member of staff on had to get everyone into teams and explain some basic rules initially and then we will leave you to get on and have fun playing while you work out.
