Indoor Swimming Pool

Indoor Swimming Pool

Swimming in our indoor pool in the Leisure Centre is the perfect way to spend an afternoon

Sandy Balls guests enjoy use of our indoor and outdoor pools. For our younger guests, a separate toddler area keeps them safe and happy while they find their water wings. The pool operates a mixture of Family Swim and Adult Only Swim sessions, as well as Aqua-Fit classes and the kids favourite, Pirate Mania – where they can have fun on our giant inflatable! At peak busy times we operate an hourly band system on a first come first served basis. Bands are given out 15 minutes before the session starts. The system is designed to allow more people the chance to enjoy our pool.

Swimming lessons are available all year round outside of the school holidays.


All under 8’s must be accompanied by a responsible person (16+yrs) in the water – one adult for up to 2 children ages 4-7 yrs and one adult per each child 0-3 yrs.


During weekends and school holidays, guests can pre-book selected family swim sessions for just £1 per session. Other sessions will be open family swim sessions where there is no charge.

PRE-BOOKED FAMILY SWIM:  For just £1 per person (non-refundable) you can guarantee a time and date to enjoy our pool. Pre-booked Family Swimming will be available at weekends and during school holidays from 3pm-6pm daily.
Book online:

OPEN FAMILY SWIM: Open family swim sessions will be available at all other times. Sessions may be busy and entry is not guaranteed.
