FAQs

Is the leisure pool open for swimming?

From Monday 19 October we will be re-opening the leisure pool at Crown Pools for leisure swimming. Customers will be able to book a slot for themselves and up to 5 others.

Customers will need to pre-book one slot on a leisure swim session under an adult iCard, and then attend the session with up to 5 others. Booking is available online.

Groups with young children must adhere to the national ratio for swimming pools ensuring one adult attends for every two children under the age of 8 years old. Customers failing to comply to this ratio will be refused entry.

Please ensure each member of the group arrives ‘beach-ready’ and no earlier than 10 minutes before the session.

How does the social distancing affect my swim and what measures will be in place?

In order to ensure the safety of our customers and manage social distancing we are splitting the leisure pool into two, with each side bookable by one group. If you are in the same household then you won’t be required to socially distance. If you book with others outside of your household, then you will be required to socially distance at all times, including in the pool.

On booking a slot, the person booking will be responsible for ensuring that all participants that need to socially distance, do. Failure to socially distance where required may result in you being asked to leave the pool and you being prevented from booking in the future.

Why can I only have 6 people per booking?

This is to ensure we meet the ‘Rule of 6’ requirements as set out by the Government.

How much will leisure swimming cost?

The price of a Leisure Swim session for a group of up to 6 people is £15.50 for a 45-minute session. All sessions must be booked and paid for up to 7 days in advance.

Please note customers on any Concession type of Bookings Card or membership will receive a 25% discount, taking their price to £11.60.

How do I book a leisure swim slot?

The easiest way to book your session is online and sessions will be bookable up to 7 days in advance. You will only need to book one space on your chosen session under an adult iCard. You can then attend the session with up to 5 other people.

If you don’t have an iCard, you will need to sign up online for a free Bookings iCard or one of our monthly memberships. You will then be directed to register for online booking using your unique member number which will be emailed to you. If you come across any problems with signing up or booking online, please see the ‘Bookings’ section of our FAQs, or you can contact us here.

How will the leisure swim session work?

Each Leisure Swim session will last 45 minutes. The Leisure Pool at Crown Pools will be divided into two halves to ensure social distancing is maintained. Each group will have exclusive use of their half of the pool.

Fun floats will be available during the 45-minute session, although the frog slide will be shared by switching pool sections half way through your booking. The wave machine won’t be available during these sessions.

Customers are reminded to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the session start time, and to bring a £1 coin or trolley token for use in our lockers.

Is leisure swim included on my monthly membership?

Leisure Swim is not included on any membership type, however any customer with a Concession membership type will receive a 25% discount on Leisure Swim sessions.
