Swim sessions are bookable up to 7 days in advance via the app, online or by calling the relevant leisure centre. Booking your swim session in advance is recommended, however you can also just turn up to swim (subject to availability).
All adults and children attending a session need to be included on the booking (this also applies to under 5s). Currently, if you require multiple people on one online booking e.g to add children, please give the centre a call to add others to your booking.
