Card-only payments

Please note: From 24 February we will no longer be accepting cash payments at the Swimming Pool. Users can continue to pay by contactless card for pay-as-you-go swimming. Members with swimming as part of their membership will be unaffected. We expect this to reduce waiting times at the Pool's reception.

Pool closures

Occasionally we have to close the pool at short notice for health and safety reasons. Check our twitter feed for the latest pool closure announcements.
