    Visiting the Leisure Pool

    All Leisure Pool sessions MUST be pre-booked prior to arrival, to make your booking please click here  

    (Please note all bookings are NON REFUNDABLE, all changes to bookings must be made atleast 7 days prior to the booking date)

    IMPORTANT: If you are a non-member you do not need to input a Member/Registration Number during the booking process; please leave this box blank


    What do I need to do before I arrive?

    All pool sessions must be pre-booked before arriving.


    What do I need to do when I arrive?

    Customers will be required to arrive 'beach ready' and arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to their booking slot. 

    Our Changing Village will be available for customer use; whilst adhering to covid safe cleaning measures.

    Lockers will be available to store customers' belongings; please avoid bringing any valuables with you during your visit (Please bring a £1 coin or trolley token to access the lockers).

    How long do I have in the water?

    Each session is 55 minutes.


    What will happen after the session ends?

    We ask that all customers vacate the water when instructed by our lifeguards. 

    You will then have 20 minutes from the time your session ends to when you need to vacate the Changing Village.  (This is to allow us time to clean the area before the next session starts).


    How will social distancing be controlled?

    The maximum capacity of each pool has been calculated based on 6m2 per bather which has effectively reduced the capacity of each pool by 50%.

    As a further control in the first instance, and to manage the unpredictable flow of customers between pools, the combined bather load of the pools has also been reduced by a further 25%.


    Swim Ratios

    Despite the changes to our processes and procedures our swim ratios still apply:

    0-3 years - 1 adult to 1 child

    4-7 years - 1 adult to 2 children

    8 + years - Unaccompanied

    A Parent or responsible adult is defined as +16 years, they must be in the water with the children, they must maintain a constant watch over them and be in close contact with those of the children who are weak or non-swimmers.

    It is strongly recommended that weak and non-swimming children wear an approved flotation device


    Flumes and Space Bowl Height Restrictions:

    1.1 Metres for Red, Orange and Yellow flumes

    1.3 Metres for the Space Bowl (Space Bowl users must be able to swim unaided; on exit water is 2.5M deep)



    We hope you have a pleasant visit, and look forward to welcoming you to Cardiff International Pool & Gym.
