Indoor pool at St Luke's

Our 22.8 meter indoor swimming pool at St Luke’s Sports Centre is heated to a constant 29°c, is three lanes wide and 2.5 meters deep at the deep end.

During swim sessions, two lanes are put in place allowing areas for swimmers to choose their own pace. For private bookings and special events, starting blocks and swimming floats are also available.

The pool is also home to our acclaimed Learn to Swim programme, which helps over 700 children learn to swim every week. The swim school takes place throughout the week and follows the Swim England guidelines and caters for children aged three years and over.

We also hold a number of pool-based adult education courses and Adult Swimming Lessons at St Luke’s pool.

 Swim Membership

A swim membership allows you to make the most of both of our swimming facilities. There is no long term commitment, so whether you want to take out membership for a whole year, or just make the most over one month, membership can save you money every time you visit. Membership can be purchased from the Sports Park, St Luke's Sports Centre or Cornwall House outdoor pool during the summer months.

*If you have a health and fitness membership with us you can add swimming on to your membership as a 'bolt-on' option for a discounted monthly rate - check out our membership page for details.
