Swimming

Due to the current Covid-19 situation all swimming sessions have to be booked.

This can be done via our online booking system.

 

 

The pool is 15.75 metres long by 7.5 metres wide and has a constant depth of 1.2m. We try to keep it 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
