Pool's Size & Depth:
Wimbledon College has a 25 metre indoor heated swimming pool with the water temperature set at 30°C throughout the year. The pool is 10 metres wide which means there are four lanes allowing plenty of space for stamina training and races. The shallow end of this pool is 1 meter deep and the maximum depth in the deep end is 2.7 meters. At more than the required minimum depth of 1.8 meters for a deep end, we are also able to teach and practice basic diving and personal survival skills in this pool as part of our learn-to-swim programme. The venue is well supplied with all the aids - such as kickboards, pull buoys, floats, and noodles, required for teaching swimming so there is no requirement to bring along additional swimming equipment to lessons. It is a requirement that all swimmers, male and female, wear swimming hats for hygiene reasons.
There are two spacious and separate changing rooms at this venue. One is allocated for boys/men and one is for girls/ladies’ usage. Both changing rooms have their own warm showers and toilets. There are no lockers at this facility but each changing room has plenty of hangers/hooks to hang clothes and bags. There are no baby boards for changing babies either, so, for a baby lesson, people are advised to bring their own changing mats with them. There is a separate toilet for people with disabilities at this facility.
Observatory & Waiting area:
This swimming pool has an observatory area with benches available for parents/carers and siblings to sit down and observe swimming lessons. There is also a foyer area (with limited tables and chairs) for parents who would like to feed their children after the lessons. There is no vending machine or cafe at this venue so, please don’t expect to be able to purchase any food or drink (hot or cold) at this venue.
