For more information see Coronavirus (COVID-19): Leisure centres and libraries.

  • All swimmers must follow the directional signs at the end of the pool.  Do not swim in the middle of the lane.
  • Lanes 7 and 8 are Swim Training Lanes only.
  • Lanes 4 to 6 are for social swimming.
  • Please use the most suitable lane for your speed and stroke.
  • Lifeguard staff may ask customers to change lanes to benefit continuous flow of all swimmers.  Please obey instructions given by Lifeguards at all times.
  • Entering the water - wait until there is a large gap between people and slip into the water feet first.
  • Be polite to swimmers of varying skill levels.
  • Passing - if you find yourself catching up with a swimmer in front of you, the request to pass is signified by a gentle tap on the feet to let them know that you need to pass.  The swimmer will then have to stop at the next wall and let you pass.
  • Do not turn into oncoming swimmers.
  • If you cannot keep up with the pace, please change lanes.
  • Above all, please use common sense and courtesy.
