Swimming Pool

Swimming is the perfect activity for those of all ages; it enables you to exercise to build up strength and stamina, have fun splashing around, or relax in a calm environment. Whichever of these you wish to pursue, our Horsham swimming pool has something to offer you.

Whether you prefer a swimming class, taking an enjoyable leisurely swim, or winding down after a gym workout, our swimming pool in Horsham is ideal. With six lanes there is plenty of room for everyone, and you can go at your own pace. The pool is available for members, lessons and classes, simply book your desired time slot online or contact reception.

The pool is shallow at both ends, and 1.8m deep in the centre, perfect for those getting started and children. At 25m long, it’s also great for swimming lengths.

Want to relax and unwind after your swim session? Our leisure pool also features other facilities, such as a state-of-the-art sauna, available to those with a full membership or a swim only membership.

Benefits and safety

Swimming is considered a very safe form of fitness due to the buoyancy of the water. This makes it gentle on your joints and less likely to cause injury. Swimming also helps strengthen your heart and lungs and reduces stress. The use of pools is perfect for those who may be recovering from an injury or those who wish to exercise in a more serene environment than that of a gym.

The safety and well-being of all our swimmers are of high importance to us, so we ensure that there is always a trained lifeguard on duty. Our lifeguards are there to aid all of our swimmers, and are happy to answer any of your questions or help with concerns.
