Community Swimming

Community Swimming

One of our main aims at Bishop’s Waltham Community Swimming is to open the swimming pool to the local community. Allow us to introduce our public swimming sessions!

Our 20 metre, four lane, swimming pool is a fantastic place to have fun with your family, to get fit, or socialise with friends!

The water is warm, which is great for younger children, our older members, and also for those recovering from injury. We also have ramp access up to the pool building.

All public swim sessions have a lifeguard (or lifeguards) on duty to allow peace of mind.

Lane Swimming

We have one slow lane, known locally as the “chatting” lane, for those looking for a social swim or a more relaxed pace! Plus we have one Medium / Fast lane, for those looking to pick up the pace and push themselves.

Children are welcome to join our lane swim sessions, however they are require to swim lengths. And we do ask that you put them in the correct lane, according to their pace (not yours!).
