Postponed Opening Day – Saturday 27th May 2017

*** Due to the last few days of rain, the contractors have been unable to finish off the work on the pool and as it currently stands it is not safe for public use. As a result it is now no longer possible to get the work done in time for Sunday.  The opening on Sunday has therefore been postponed.

We are incredibly disappointed about this as we were really excited to get the pool open again, but we have taken the decision today that it will open on Saturday 27 May at 12:30pm.

Our community-run pool will open on Saturday 27th May with a day of free swimming.  Gates will open at 12:30pm and the official ribbon cutting by the Portreeve will be at 1pm and the swimming will start.  Dartmoor Butchers are running a barbecue and there will be cakes and lots of fun activities so please come down to join in and support the pool, even if you don’t fancy getting wet yourself!

At 5pm there will be lane-swimming for an hour, which will also be free, until we close at 6pm.

Our pool is heated to about 26C so come for a swim rain or shine.  Parking is in the main Ashburton Car Park in the centre of town.

Season tickets are already on sale on this website and if you buy before the 26 May then you will get this season’s ticket at last year’s price, saving £5 per ticket!   If you can buy a season ticket, it’s a great way to support the pool and get fit and have fun this summer.

You can book lessons, full moon swims and the Jaws film night online too!
