Our 50-metre indoor L-shaped pool has a diving area with a 3-platform Olympic diving tower, springboards, a slide, a bubbler and a swing rope. The pool has a flow-over-edge design that facilitates getting into and out of the water. A step-ramp in the shallow end makes for easier access. The high ceiling, excellent ventilation and natural light make this pool a pleasure to use. The pool is supervised by qualified, professional and caring lifeguards / aquatic instructors.
All Changes to Public Swim Schedule will be announced HERE. Contact us to confirm the pool schedule.

Direct supervision of children under (14) is required in the pool area, the locker rooms and throughout the facility. One adult is required to supervise every two children less than 7 years of age. In the pool area, children under 7 years of age should be within ‘arms-reach’.
