Pool programme FAQs

Why are lane swimming sessions 45 minutes?

We have found that customers are not always utilising the full hour, and by offering 45 mins sessions we are able to incorporate more swimming sessions into our timetable. We have also been able to do this by reducing the cleaning gaps to 15 mins. To ensure the cleanliness levels remain high, we will have more staff to carry out the cleaning between sessions.

These are shorter, 30 minute sessions perfect for those with limited available time to swim, such as during a lunch break.  Many of our users already prefer to swim for under 30 minutes, so by offering Express Lane slots, we are able to offer more swim sessions throughout the day.

By introducing the 45 minute and Express Lane swim sessions, we have increased the number of lane sessions at weekends. We are also retaining family swim sessions in the main pools as we feel it is really important that children have the opportunity to swim in a fun setting with their family members.

Check the programme to see what sessions are available

Children aged 8+ can attend lane swimming sessions, providing that they are able to swim lengths. Our lifeguards will monitor all lane swimmers, and will act if they believe any swimmer is unable able to competently swim lengths. Family swim sessions are available for fun casual swimming, where continuous lane swimming is not required.

Children can swim free with our Swimming Lessons Membership

We have a warm and inviting teaching pool, which features friendly animal paintings on the walls to put your little one at ease. This is the perfect place for your baby or toddler to get acquainted with being in the water, and build confidence which will help later in life.

Swimming benefits young children in developing balance, co-ordination, circulation and strengthens the heart and lungs.

I think it’s one of the most inclusive places I have been to.

All the soft play staff are very lovely to my younger daughter who has severe autism and go out of their way to be kind to her and my older daughter when they come to play. It makes things a lot easier for me and they show a genuine interest in both of them. I think it’s one of the most inclusive places I have been to.

All of the parents were really impressed...

We had a Christmas party in Treasure Island today and I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff. It was really well organised and all the children’s food and the sandwich platters for the adults were lovely. All of the parents were really impressed and the children had a great time. The staff were all so friendly too. I will definitely book a party again!
