Details

Swimming provides a great low impact cardiovascular exercise, working almost every major muscle group in the body. It is also an effective means of relieving stress and a great way to unwind from the strains of the day.

Our lane swimming programme allows you to enjoy the multiple benefits of aquatic training in our world class pools. There is provision of a pool hoist for ease of entry to the pool.

Due to the variety of the events at Ponds Forge, our regular programme is subject to alteration. Visit the website for regular updates www.ponds-forge.co.uk.
