Swimming

Swim with Glasgow Club

You can train to swim at a competitive level or enjoy a few lengths at your local pool. Whatever you choose, we have swimming pools across the city so you will never be far from one. Find your nearest pool

There's no need to book ahead but if you do register (or take up membership) and book and pay in advance it will save you time when you arrive and individual members can beat the queue and head straight to automated gates in venues that have them. 

Supervision Ratios (children)

Where children are swimming it's vital you check our supervision ratios which are there to help keep everyone safe in the water.
