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.

Halloween Half-Term Break

Public swimming will be available Monday to Friday mornings due to schools off for half term. Swimming lessons on as normal (afternoon).

Open Swimming: This is designated for all, including families. Where capacity allows a lane may be introduced for those swimmers wishing to swim lengths.
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.

During peak times (evenings and weekends), session swimming may be introduced to avoid overcrowding in the pool; check with Amphitheatre staff to avoid disappointment.

Please note that we reserve the right to close areas of the centre from time to time at our discretion, e.g. for maintenance repairs, refurbishment or cleaning.
