Loughborough University Pool

Our £6 million facility is a state-of-the-art 50m, 8 lane training pool. It was designed to accommodate a wide spectrum of users, from the world’s most elite swimmers to children learning to swim for the first time.

The floor of our pool is moveable, allowing us to raise it up to accommodate children’s swimming lessons or our Recreational swims. The 6-tonne moveable boom that runs through the centre of the pool means that we can also hold Lane Swim sessions that are both 25m and 50m long.

We are home to some of the best British Swimmer’s in the country, as well as a number of other elite athletes and numerous student clubs. Despite this we always try our hardest to accommodate members of the public so that they may experience the great training environment that our athletes enjoy. Keep an eye on our weekly-updated timetables to know when you can come and see it for yourself.


Essential maintenance

Between the 31st July until the 19th August 2017 we are going to be carrying out essential maintenance on the moveable floor. To limit disruption we are keeping the deep half of the swimming pool open during this period. Please see the timetable below for availability of Lane Swimming and Aqua Jogging. We apologise for any inconvenience this may course.

Swimming Pool Public Sessions

At Loughborough University Swimming Pool, we don’t just facilitate elite level swimming and club activities. We also provide a great range and availability of public swimming sessions in the form of Recreational Swimming, Lane Swimming and Swimming Classes which benefit the community as a whole.

Our Recreational, Lane Swim and Aqua Jogging sessions are all included in the cost of a Swimming Pool or Gym membership. These sessions are also available to non members on a pay-per-session basis.

Adult swimming lessons must be booked in advance and incur an extra charge, as do Aqua Aerobics classes.

Please note that when Pool Closed appears on the timetable, this is due to the pool being booked for use by university/external swimming clubs and is not available to anyone else at these times.
