A whistle will be blown 10 minutes before the end of each session to ensure that there is no overlap of people leaving and entering the pool. Cancellations can be made up to 12 hours in advance, otherwise you will be charged for your swim.
  • Lane Bookings: You will need to book a slot in a lane (fast, medium or slow), appropriate to your swimming ability/speed. There will be a maximum of 8 people in each lane, to allow for social distancing in the pool.
  • Lane swimmers – Be mindful about your speed and no overtaking. Please do not overtake whilst swimming. Before pushing off at each turn, check to see if anyone faster is approaching and let them swim ahead of you. Please follow the directional signs and move across to the appropriate side of the lane for each length.
