Swimming is a fantastic activity! Whether you are looking for some family fun, a wind down after a workout or a low impact exercise, the Stokewood Leisure Centre pool offers something for everyone.

There is a 25 yard swimming pool for lane swimming, aqua classes, dedicated swimming sessions and family fun! In addition a sauna, accessible from the poolside, provides a quiet area for total relaxation. For keen lane swimmers, two to three lanes are available during most public swimming sessions (unless there is another activity taking place) and there are also adult and over 50s swimming sessions as well as Adult Swim & Chill sessions - soft relaxing music while you swim.

Family Wet & Wacky sessions are a great way to splash away the weekends and school holidays with pool inflatables, water toys and music (public or lane swimming is not available during these sessions).

For those who need to improve on swimming technique or learn to swim, Bournemouth Swimming Academy offers swimming lessons for most ages and abilities. Visit our Stokewood Leisure Centre Swimming Lessons page for more information If you require further information about the Swimming Academy or are unsure what stage your child should be in, please contact Christie who can advise you or even book a free swimming
