If you are into swimming then look no further than our facilities at GL1. We have four fantastic swimming pools, meaning that the whole family is catered for – so whether you’re a beginner, your children want a fun session or you’re a serious swimmer, we have the pool for you.
A bit more about our pools:
Barton Pool: our 8 lane, 25 metre competition swimming pool is regularly used for national and international competitions but the rest of the time it’s perfect for our local community to use. What’s more, the depth of the pool can be varied, depending on its use
Twyver Pool: our 4 lane, 25 metre pool is perfect for lane swimming and specialist sessions. It has a fixed depth of between 0.9 and 1.8 metres
Elver Pool: our shallow learner swimming pool where most of our children’s swimming lessons take place. When lessons are not taking place, it is also available for public use. Under 11s must be accompanied by an adult
Tad Pool: this is where the fun really happens. The fun pool with slide, bubble seat and water jets for under 11s when accompanied by an adult
