Swimming Group

Coordinator Chris Burleigh



The swimming group meets at the Excel centre, Mitchell Avenue, CV4 8DY (off Charter Avenue), on the first Monday of each month and in some months the second as well between 3 pm and 4 pm. The cost is 3. For that we have exclusive use of a warm pool (27 degrees), with lifeguard supervision. One half of the pool is set at a depth of just 1 metre 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, fast or as slow, as you like. If you would like a timely monthly email reminder, please let Chris Burleigh know at chrisburleigh0@gmail.com (and that is a 'zero')


Dates of sessions in 2017 are as follows:

Monday 9th Jan

Monday 6th & 13th Feb

Monday 6th & 13th March

Monday 3rd April 

Monday 8th May (1st is the bank holiday)

Monday 5th & 12th June

Monday 3rd & 10th July.



The cost is currently 3.00 per session + 1 refundable locker rental.  If we loose this facility we may have to pay an exalted cost.


There is plenty of free car parking


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!
