Swimming Pool

There are two public pools at the Amphitheatre; a small pool with a slide and water features and a 25-metre main pool.

The versatility of these pools enable them to be used for a variety of activities including; public swim sessions, aqua fit classes and dedicated lane swimming.

As well as the main pools we also have a dedicated learner pool.

With a depth range up to 0.9 metres, this pool is ideal for introducing smaller children to water.

Lane Swimming: These sessions are for those swimmers wishing to swim lengths.

Under-16s must leave both pools by 8.45pm every weekday evening to allow for Adults Only Swimming.

School sessions will be held during term time however there will be a lane system in operation to enable public swimming to continue.
