What is it: Aqua Fit classes are high energy and fun in which you perform a range of aerobic moves in the pool shown to you by our motivational instructors! No matter what your age, ability or experience aqua fit is an inclusive activity suitable for everyone. Our upbeat classes will ensure you are boosting your fitness, getting a top workout, and having a great time!
Benefits: They’ll help you lose weight, get stronger and improve your fitness too, without putting much strain through your joints. This makes them great for people with mobility issues as the water supports the joints, allowing you to get stronger without putting yourself at risk of injury, as well as helping recover from injury.

Shoot down the flume at speed splashing into the water beneath, or tackle the giant inflatable obstacle course in our main pool.
Younger swimmers can play in our small pool which offers an exciting range of mats. Please note that age and height restrictions may apply.
What is it: Aqua jogging involves running in the deep end of the pool and be prepared to use your arms, hips, and legs continuously.
Benefits: you get all the benefits of running, but with no impact so it preserves your joints, especially your knees. The pressure of the water helps your heart pump blood around your body, burning more fat and toning your muscles faster than land-based exercises. Research suggests it burns over 11 calories a minute.

Whether you want to get fit and healthy, relax with a gentle swim, have some family fun or learn a life saving skill, we have something for everyone.
Our two pools (a 25m six-lane main pool and 8m x 5m teaching pool) have a diverse and exciting pool programme ranging from public swims, fun sessions, adult only and lane swimming. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 16 years or above in any of our pools.
Please note that under 3's go free with fee paying adult. We are now operating our normal pool timetables and you do not need to book for public swimming session.

Teacher led learn to swim programme following the Swim England learn to swim pathway. From beginners to competition standard, our lessons (pdf 1.4MB) are based on continuous assessment to help build confidence and strength in the water, whilst also giving you a life skill. All lessons are undertaken by our fully qualified ASA teachers and participants receive badges and certificates at every stage through the scheme. The cost is £20 per month via Direct Debit and for more information please refer to our terms and conditions.
Lessons for children start from post natal with our introduction to water and run right through various pathways to competition standard. Children will work their way through the various stages building water confidence, learning new skills such as treading water and aquatic breathing and then performing and perfecting different strokes.
Age should not be a barrier when learning to swim, so we also offer adult lessons. Our lessons are specifically designed for everyone from 16 and over to learn the basics of swimming, improving confidence in water right through to more advanced stroke techniques and training.
With both children and adult lessons, we use Course Pro. This is a system where you can monitor progress, receive feedback from the instructors and ask any questions or queries you may have at the touch of a button. We have waiting lists for the majority of our swimming lessons at present, but you can still register your interest using our online form. Please read our terms and conditions for more detail.
