Swimmable’s facilities

Swimmable at Gardens Centre has been developed with three goals in mind – the first was to offer a quality and innovative learn to swim programme. The second was to operate to European health & safety standards and the third was to provide a pleasurable environment for parents and children to relax and enjoy swimming lessons. The centre is also available for private hire.

The pool:
Swimmable has an indoor pool that has been designed specifically for learn to swim. It is 8 metres x 4.5 metres and one depth throughout. There is a step all along one side. It is heated to between 30 and 32 degrees and can be used for swimming lessons year round.

Hypo-allergenic water:
At Swimmable we use an ozone filtration system, which means the water is virtually chlorine free. This means your children shouldn’t get chlorine rashes or red eyes. We may need to use chlorine from time to time if needed, but we will only do this as a last resort.

The environment:
Swimmable offers a private, exclusive environment where lessons take place with no external noise or distractions.

Learn to swim equipment:
Swimmable is proud to be associated with Speedo. Speedo have provided the latest Speedo swimming aids for use in the swimming lessons, as well as a Speedo retail outlet at Swimmable.

Changing Rooms:
Swimmable at Gardens Centre has spacious, well equipped changing rooms with hot showers (out of drought time!), toilets and baby changing facilities.

Parking:
Gardens Centre offers safe, on-site parking and Swimmable have 5 designated parking bays next to the entrance.

Coffee Shop & Waiting Room:
Swimmable at Gardens Centre offers a spacious and comfortable waiting room for you to relax in while waiting for your children to finish their lessons. There is a coffee shop, magazines, free Wi-Fi and plenty of other parents to chat to.

Underwater photography:
Each swimming term we have a weekend set aside for a professional underwater photographer to visit the Swimmable Centres. A picture of your child swimming underwater will be something you will keep for life and the quality is outstanding. Speak to your swimming instructor for more information on dates and prices.
