Your safety is our priority
We have changed everything we do!
From start to finish, our entire system of procedures have changed. Every single aspect of our facility has been re-designed to ensure both COVID security & our welcoming environment.
When pools opened on the 25th of July - We did not.
We held on, held back & ensured every single detail was right for you & our staff.
Quality is the key & we want the very best for our customers and our team.
We haven't just made our facility COVID secure,
We have made everything better!
We've expanded our service range to offer you an even smoother experience & give your swimmer the very best in swimming tuition.
Our COVID security isn't about ticking boxes, It's about safety and peace of mind.
Relax in the knowledge we have considered and implemented every possible change - we have COVID officers on duty every session, we have a simple - effective - safe system in place.

All information for holidays, guidance updates, contact points & ordering drinks/badges can all be done through the app
We will be fully compliant with NHS test and trace with QR codes at every seat!
