Social sessions are for those looking to get enjoyment out of swimming. These sessions enable you to swim with others of similar ability and are a great way to meet like-minded swimmers.
Family sessions have been specifically designed for those with children. The Family sessions offer a calm and enjoyable atmosphere for young and old alike - the perfect family day out.
Swimming is an excellent all round form of exercise working all of the major muscle groups - which means that the whole body gets a good workout! It's an effective fat burning exercise and a great way to tone up! Studies have shown that going for a regular swim can be as good for you as going for a regular run. A gentle 30 minute swim can burn over 250 calories*.*Source: Amateur Swimming Association (ASA)
At Water Meadows Swimming and Fitness Complex, there are a variety of sessions available in our 25m competition pool and in all of them you are able to workout at your own pace. Sessions are available for all ages and abilities. Please see the descriptions on the right to find the sessions that suit you.The leisure pool has fantastic water features including rapids, water cannons and a wave machine with artificialwaves created for the swimming pool that simulates waves rolling onto a beach from the sea. The rapids are fast and furious, and the pool water is channelled down a canyon in the pool like a fast flowing river which creates astrong current in the pool.Other features include:50m twister ride: A white knuckle ride, combining 6 seconds of thrills, spills and screams that take riders through a breathtaking flume of twists, turns and steep chutes.
