Swimming Group

Co-ordinator — Kim Hathrel

When: First and second Mondays of each month, between 3 pm and 4 pm.
Where: The Excel centre, Mitchell Avenue, CV4 8DY
Cost: Currently 3.70 per session + 1 refundable locker rental.

Owing to a change of policy by the Xcel Leisure Centre, bank holiday sessions are available as "Public Swimming", and therefore there are no u3a specific sessions in May.

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 and jacuzzi.

The cost is currently 3.70 per session + 1 refundable locker rental.

There is plenty of free car parking.

Attendance varies each week, and more members are welcome.
