Swimming

We offer a range of activities in the pool, designed to suit the needs of all ages and all swimming abilities.

Make a Splash!

Swimming is a great all-round exercise and has huge health benefits for every member of the family. Whether it's a workout with Aqua Aerobics, swimming with the family or a quiet relaxing swim... We can offer you all these and more!

Be sure to check our Pool Policy for ratio's in the pool and important information: Pool Policy
(Please note at present all under 16's will need to be accompanied by an adult)

All our swim sessions are pre-bookable. Adult lane swimming is available to book online, via our mobile app or by calling our Bookings Team, however, public and free swims will need to be booked by calling our Team on 01633 627100.


Our public swims are 60 minute sessions where you will have the whole pool available to use. However, as there are other public members within the pool area we must ask that you maintain the social distancing guidelines at all times. Numbers within these sessions will vary between centres but meet all current guidance.

We offer Free Public Swims for Under 17's at Cwmbran Stadium and Pontypool Active Living Centre. Please note that under 16's will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.

We also offer free swim sessions for Over 60's in our Gentle Swim sessions.

You will book for a 1-hour slot and will need to arrive beach ready (Swimwear underneath clothes) Please choose an appropriate lane for your swim ability, Slow, Medium or Fast and be prepared to move lanes if needed.

Numbers will be restricted in each lane and you will be required to follow the one-way signs.
