Swimming

Come rain...

...or shine!

The pool is 15.75 metres long by 7.5 metres wide and has a constant depth of 1.2m. It is heated to 30 degrees, winter and summer, making it ideal for serious swimmers as well as those not so confident.

 

Why Exercise in Water?

  • More key muscles groups are used in swimming than in other sports
  • It improves flexibility, strength and circulation
  • It improves the ability to control and maintain a healthy weight
  • Injury is less likely due to the support of the water with no pounding or jarring the joints
  • Water is 800 times denser than air so it requires more effort to move through it
  • Being submerged creates a private environment to exercise in
  • Water can be as heavy as you want it to be making it an excellent piece of fitness equipment

Please note that the pool must be vacated at least 1 hour before the club closes each evening
