Swimming can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age or ability.

Whether you want to just swim, get fit or simply have fun in the pool, we have 6 large pools and 5 teaching pools with warmer water for little ones just dipping their toes in the water.

As our pools are re-opening after the COVID-19 outbreak, a swim session will look very different. Please be aware of the changes and new procedures in place. We’ve developed these following Swim England guidance and they are in place to keep you, our members and our staff safe.

If you’re an existing member, you will need to unfreeze your membership before booking online or via the app.

You MUST pre-book your swim session in advance.

We will only be offering Lane Swim and Family Swim sessions. Lane Swim will be a one hour slot and Family Swim will be a 45 minute slot.


We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to our pools soon. If you have any queries about our new swimming procedures, please check out our Swimming FAQs.

You can also book a swim session via our SCL App. If you haven’t already got our App, download it here.

If you’re unable to book online or via the App, you can book an activity by calling your leisure centre when it has re-opened.

Family friendly and accessible changing facilities are available at all sites with warm showers and secure lockers too.

Swimming timetable

Whilst we re-open our leisure centres in a phased approach, we will be re-opening our pools but with a restricted timetable. View swimming timetable.
