Swimming Group

Coordinator Chris Burleigh



The swimming group meets at the Excel centre, Mitchell Avenue, CV4 8DY (off Charter Avenue), on the first and second Mondays of each month (except if there is a clash with school or public holidays), between 3 pm and 4 pm. We have exclusive use of the pool, with lifeguard supervision. One half of the pool is set at a depth of just 1.25 metres for the entire length, making very safe swimming, and the other half is about 1.8 metres deep, for keen swimmers. There are no lessons or group sessions, so you can come along and swim as much or as little, as fast or as slow, as you like.

There is also a sauna.

The cost is currently 3.00 per session + 1 refundable locker rental. 

There is plenty of free car parking.

Attendance varies each week, and more members are welcome.

If you would like a timely monthly email reminder, please let Chris Burleigh know at swimming@balsallcommonu3a.org 


Dates of sessions in 2019 are as follows:

Jan 7th and 14th

Feb 4th and 11th

Mar 4th and 11th

April 1st and 8th

May 13th only (I have found we don't get many takers for an extra session on the third Monday)

June 3rd and 10th 

July 1st and 8th 


Our exclusive use of the pool is under constant review we need more people to attend (I realise not everyone can attend 100% of the time.) Please make every effort to attend and if possible spread the word!
