Diving into one of our swimming pools is a real treat and here at 1610 we have 7 leisure centres that offer swimming pools as part of its facilities within Somerset, Devon and Dorchester. 

Indoors or outdoors, swimming is a great way to improve fitness, tone up and burn calories.  Swimming is great for people from all walks of life. You don’t have to be the perfect swimmer to reap the benefits. 

We have sessions for everyone from fun sessions, general swimming to traditional lane sessions and everything in between. If you want something more specific or some new idea’s to make swimming more relevant, you can improve fitness by attending a swimfit sessions, and aqua exercise classes, or use our facilities as preparation for your next triathlon training or if you need to improve your stroke come along to our swimming lessons.

Swimming isn’t just about swimming length after length, if you want more variety or you want to use swimming as a tool for achieving your fitness goals - Ask one of our Swim buddies on poolside, it's simply a fitness instructor for the swimming pool.

Families are always at the heart of what we offer so you'll be free to splash about with the kids at one of the family fun inflatable fun sessions or pool parties. For the aspiring teenager looking to start a career in leisure you too can take the plunge, with one of our lifeguard courses.
