Going Swimming or to the Gym

All swimming and gym sessions are now available as normal so there is no need to book.

Please note that aqua classes and the Disco Dive swim sessions remain as pre-book online.

During busy periods we will be operating a band system for swimmers with a 60 minute swim including changing time and that there could be a waiting time if our pools are at capacity.

We ask all people going swimming to be considerate of others and to ensure that they have read the pool safety (including pool behaviour) rules which can be found below.

Pool Safety Rules

Booking a fitness class, aqua class or the Disco Dive.

Our aqua and fitness classes and the Friday night junior Disco Dive will continue to be booked in advance and can be done either online, by phone or at reception.

For customers with Live It memberships you can book classes in advance using the membership number on your Live It membership card as before.
