Lane swim: Three lanes consisting of a slow, medium and fast lane are put in place allowing swimmers to choose a lane depending on their ability/goal. In the fast lane, fins and flippers can be used but please note snorkels are not permitted in the pool.
Casual swim: 1 lane is put in place for swimmers wanting to do this, whilst the rest of the pool is left as an open space for relaxed swimming.
