New Season Starts Sunday 19 May 2019!

Opening day!

Make splash on Sunday 19 May 2019 with a day of celebrations and free swimming at Ashburton Swimming Pool’s opening day!

Gates open at midday. Swimming starts at 12:30pm once the ribbon has been cut!

You are welcome to enjoy the grounds, barbecue, cakes, games and activities before and after your free swim. We have some generous prizes from local businesses for our raffle and mystery envelop game.

Swimming is free on opening day and so the general swim is likely to be busy. You will be given a swimming time and a band when you arrive at the pool. You are welcome to enjoy the grounds and activities before and after your swim. Lane Swimming starts at 5pm and, whilst it is also free, is usually quieter.

Membership – special offer!

Memberships bought on or before opening day will be £5 less than full price. Members receive a discount on children’s lessons, Waterpolo, Junior Lifeguard Club and Aquafit.

There is no parking at the pool. If driving, please park in the public car park in the centre of Ashburton which is about 5 minutes walk from the pool. On Sundays this car park is free. Thank you!
