Swimming Pool Etiquette

CB0Q1836We aim to make the lane swim facility in the main pool as enjoyable as possible for all patrons. With this in mind please note the following:

  • Lanes are for full length swimming only
  • Swim in the direction of the lane signs
  • Swim in the lane that best suits your ability
  • Swimmers should stop to allow faster swimmers to overtake
  • Swimmers resting or waiting should do so to one side
  • Do not swim across lanes
  • Do not lean on lane ropes as this poses a risk to other swimmers
  • If unsure of use or etiquette ask lifeguard on duty.
  • Access to lane-swim should be determined by ability as determined by the lifeguard

The swim lane timetable is varied each day in order to accommodate other activities. Our aim is to provide all pool users with maximum access.

Current Swim Lane Timetables are also posted in the Pool Entrance Lobby noticeboard.
