The huge façade of glass bathes the pools in daylight all year round, making it a really inspiring place to take to the water. We cater for every swimmer, from babes in arms and absolute beginners to elite athletes. The pools are always a hive of activity, with lane swimming, lessons, aqua aerobics and hydrotherapy sessions, plus a couple of waterslides for some splashing fun.
