Book a pool party

Pool parties are available on Saturday afternoon’s from 12.30-2.30pm.

The party is split into an hour in the pool on or off the inflatable, followed by an hour in our reception area where we provide tables and chairs for you to have a party meal.

Non-swimmers must be accompanied by an adult at all times in the pool, with a maximum of 25 swimmers in the pool.

To reserve the swimming pool for a party complete our booking form.


Swimmers use their membership card to activate a wristband on the docking station, no buttons or calibration required, simply slip on a band and jump in the pool.

The swimmer returns their wristband to the docking station and their swim data is automatically uploaded to the website, ready to be viewed online.

Track how many lengths, calories burned, stroke type, stroke rate and much more with SWIMTAG - you can also view our monthly leaderboard.

Free for all leisure centre members. Ask a reception for a wristband.

We have a variety of swimming programme cards at our facility, designed to help improve your swimming fitness and ability in the pool. From beginners to advanced, whatever your level of swimming is there's a card for you!
