Reception & Facilities
When you arrive at the pool and enter the building the changing facilities are just on the left after reception. Please ensure you sign in at reception. There are changing areas with lockers, glass shower cubicles, changing cubicles and toilets. These facilities are also fully equipped with mirrored vanity units with hair dryers and hair straighteners. As we will have multiple babies who need to get changed at the same time the safest place to change your baby is on the floor and we recommend you bring your travel changing mat with you. There will be a play pen in the shared disabled changing room where babies can play safely once dressed whilst parents get changed.
Please arrive 10/15 minutes before the start of your class, to enable you to get ready and to familiarise you and your little one to the environment. On your first day any swimwear orders will be ready and waiting for you to collect poolside. If you require any disposable swim nappies these are available from reception.
The venue has a strictly no waiting on poolside policy for your safety therefore we suggest that you and your baby wait in the changing rooms for your class to begin. The pool runs at approximately at 29 degrees and has a consistent depth of 4ft. The air temperature around the pool area is nice and warm but we recommend a wearing a warma or a wetsuit at this venue to ensure your little ones comfort which we can supply on request.
It is a fantastic facility for teaching both babies and toddlers swimming and we are extremely grateful to DW Sports for allowing us to have use of the pool during our class times.
We welcome family and friends to come and watch too, however please ask them to remain in the reception area where they will be able to relax and watch on TV if requested at reception. Please can you ensure your little ones do not run around the poolside area. We also operate a no shoes on poolside policy, so we ask you to remove shoes as you come into the swimming pool area. Thank you.
