Pirate inflatable

Entry Criteria for the inflatable session:

  1.  Must be 8 years or over

  2. Must be able to continuously swim 2 lengths (40 Metres) then tread water for 30 seconds

The Inflatable Pirate ship which is proving to be very popular on Thursday afternoons (during school holidays) from 3.30pm to 5.00pm is available for Private Hire

The inflatable sessions on a Thursday afternoon are popular, so thank you all for your support. Can I please remind all persons that attend this session that they need to be able to swim one length, at least, competently and tread water. If you cannot do this then you cannot participate in this session no matter what age you are. The reason for this is that half of the inflatable is in the deep end and the other half in the shallow end. Same rules of the child admission policy apply.

Thank you again for your support 

  Fun Session:  – Monday the 1st of June 2015 from 9.30 – 11.30 am
