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 and Classes

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(*Swim England).

If you’d like to build confidence in the water, learn to swim, or join a class, we have a variety of sessions available in our 25m competition pool, for all ages and abilities, including;

·         Children’s Lessons
