Lane Allocation

There are a number of different activities happening at our pools everyday. This means that certain times of the day can be busier than others. Some activities are open to the public (eg Aqua Classes, Adult Coaching Squad), some require bookings (eg Learn To Swim) and some are members-only sessions (eg Club and Masters training). If you are interested in joining one of these groups, contact your local pool to learn more. 

Click on the links below to see the current ongoing lane allocations. These tables do not include any one-off or special bookings or closures. It's recommended that you contact the pool staff before heading there to avoid disappointment.

Please note, all Council pools will always have at least one lane reserved for lap swimming and some open water for dipping, unless the venue is closed to the public for a special event.
