It’s okay to be spontaneous again!

With Warm weather forecast over the next few weeks we thought it a perfect time to recap on when you need to book for swimming and when you can just show up-Yes you don’t always need to book-we know this is a scary concept after the last few years but its ok you can let your spontaneous side out again!

General swimming.

We have two general swim sessions each day. General swim all day which runs throughout most of the day and a late afternoon/evening general swim session (please see timetable for exact times).

Our general swim all day has a number of pre bookable places which include queue jump if you show up within the first hour of the session. Please don’t worry though we only typically have a queue on the really warm days and 90% of the time there is no queue at all. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BOOK You are welcome to just show up to these sessions and at any time during the session, just because the session is from 12noon until 5.15pm doesn’t mean you need to arrive at 12. We even lower the price at 3.30pm (Mon-Sat) and 2pm (Sundays) for those who want to catch a swim after the school run, or just a shorter swim, as we know you’re getting less time. Pre booking this session is the only way to guarantee entry and it’s a great way to ensure quick entry if you’re planning to be here within the first hour. Please can we highlight that on sunny days its only around 35% of our capacity that we allow to be sold online for our longer sessions so even on sunny days there is plenty of space for walk ins-however this can be when we start to see a queue. We do our best to stay on top of phone calls and social media during these times to keep those of you that haven’t booked informed. Our advise is 

Our general swim session Is a shorter session, typically 2 hours. We limit the numbers in these sessions. Sometimes they are shared with lane hire or swimming lessons and we adjust the capacity accordingly. We do advise booking these sessions in advance, however if you fancy a swim on the day and our online booking has closed give us a call and book over the phone. We will accept walk ins to these sessions if we have space but would always advise calling first just to be certain we have space.

Adults only swim session We know that there is only one 6.30 in some people day. However, this is often one of the best times in the day and a brilliant way to start your day. 6.30-9am Monday to Saturday. This session is popular with our members and regulars and we advise booking in advance. We do limit the numbers to this session and most people swim for 45minutes to an hour during the session. Typical numbers in the pool range from 20-35 people during this session. We do advise booking an advance or calling us on the morning to see if there is space. We will accept walk ins to these sessions if we have space but would always advise calling first just to be certain we have space.

Aquacise Is a 45 minute exercise to music class with one of our qualified instructors. There are up to 48 spaces in a class and this has to be booked in advance as its almost always sold out in advance.
