About our pool:

The pool is 25 metres long, six lane swimming pool with a depth of one metre in the shallow end and two metres in the deep end

Pool temperature is kept constant at a very comfortable 29.5°C/84°F

UV light is used to disinfect the water meaning that only a small amount of chlorine is needed to maintain a safe swimming environment.  This minimises the possibility of eye and skin irritation for swimmers.

Two pool hoists are now available to assist less able swimmers into and out of the water
