Of course we all want our own private lane and sometimes we share and make new friends. We have created a chart that shows when the pools are being used for classes or groups to help you come when it is a little more quiet. Of course, if you are looking for seclusion there are no guarantees - after all it is the Pool! Download the chart.


Not used to sharing? Need to brush up on your lap swim etiquette? view our etiquette refresher guide and be ready to share a lane.
