Putney Leisure Centre's Pool: Size & Depth

  • The swimming pool is a 12-metre indoor heated swimming pool
  • Water temperature is set at 31.5ยฐC throughout the year, perfectly nice and warm for little ones.
  • The pool is regularly tested to make sure the appropriate standards of hygiene are being maintained.
  • The shallow end is 0.8 metres deep and the max depth is 0.9 meters. At this depth, most three-year-olds are able to touch the bottom of the pool making it an ideal place for pre-schoolers to begin their learn-to-swim journey.
Being able to reach the bottom enables them to confidently enjoy the water. Putney leisure centre's teaching swimming pool has two fun slides too (slides are shut post COVID-19). Many London pools do not have this facility. The venue is well supplied with all the teaching aids - such as mats, floats and noodles, required for teaching swimming so there is no requirement to bring along additional swimming equipment to lessons.

There are spacious changing rooms for boys/men and girls/ladies and family changing rooms with baby changing boards and nappy bins. Clients have an access to plenty of warm showers and toilets. Changing area also has lockers (you need to lock them with padlocks) but, post-coronavirus pandemic, we discourage people to use the lockers to reduce the touch points. If you must use a locker, please bring your own antiseptic wipes and clean the lockers before and after and use. Padlocks for lockers can be purchased from the reception but, to be on safe-side bring your own. Parents and carers must leave the changing facilities in a clean condition and put any used nappies (normal nappies or water nappies) in nappy-bins in the baby changing cubicles, Clients are responsible to take all of their belongings with them home.

Observatory & Waiting Area:

Post Corona, unfortunately, we are asking only one adult per child to come to our lessons. We cannot have any extra adult to come to our baby and toddler lessons as spectators.

Eating & Drinking in this Venue

There are vending machines for snacks and cold drinks however, no tables or chairs available to seat after lessons. Post COVID-19, the cafe at Putney Leisure Centre remains shut till further notice.
