Swim Lane Etiquette

We aim to make the lane swim facility in the main pool as enjoyable as possible for all patrons. Please note the following: 

  • Lanes are for full length swimming only 
  • Swim in the direction of the lane signs 
  • Swim in the lane that best suits your ability 
  • Swimmers should stop to allow faster swimmers to overtake 
  • Swimmers resting or waiting should do so to one side 
  • Do not swim across lanes 
  • Do not lean on lane ropes as this poses a risk to other swimmers 
  • If unsure of use or etiquette, ask lifeguard on duty. 
  • Access to lane-swim should be determined by ability as determined by the lifeguard 

The swim lane timetable is varied from time-time to accommodate other activities. Our aim is to provide all pool users with maximum access.
