Pool Updates 2023/24

A new year begins! We are excited to have you back training with us.


  • We are continuing to offer public lane swims which, although will have increased capacities, will still require booking; this is to ensure a smooth flow of users into and out of the pool and an even spread across lanes.
  • All sessions must be pre-booked either using the Loughborough Sport app or over the telephone. Sessions are available to book upto 14 days in advance for all Loughborough Sport members. 
  • There will no longer be changeover periods between sessions, however, users must not overstay into sessions which they've not booked into.


  • Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your booked session.


  • Lanes will be divided to Slow, Medium, and Fast. Please ensure you book the lane most appropriate for your abilities. 


Predominantly Breaststroke taking 45+ seconds per length


Swimming a variety of strokes taking 30-45 seconds per length


Swimming Front crawl averaging under 30 seconds per length

  • Lane direction and speed will be indicated on the lane signs at the end of each lane.
  • Lane flow - you may be asked by the Lifeguard to change lane when swimming, this is to assist in the flow of swimmers to ensure everyone enjoys their swim.
  • Overtaking - to allow someone to overtake you, stop at the end of a lane and face away from them whilst they pass.
  • Resting - to rest ensure you always move to one side of the lane; for long periods of rest please climb out of the pool.      

If you need any help or have a question, please ask the Lifeguard.
