Cleethorpes Leisure Centre’s free form pool boasts a wave machine, aqua slide* and adjoining toddler/baby pool. The main pool is 25m with 6 lanes. There is a beach/sloped entry into the pool.

*The aqua slide can be used independently by anyone over the height of 1.1 metres. Anyone under 1.1 metres is able to use the slide with an adult.

When sessions are busy, we operate a coloured banding system for all our customers, including those on subscription memberships. Coloured bands give you 1 hour and 15 minutes in the pool. During these peak times, it may mean that you have to wait a short time to access the changing village and pool. We endeavour to keep waiting times to an absolute minimum.

The pool holds weekly inflatable sessions, an aqua disco and exercise classes.

The following guidance outlines recommendations for parents when using Lincs Inspire’s swimming pools and follows the Chartered Institute of Managing Sport and Physical Activity information and guidance document GN014.

Compliance with these rules is of paramount importance to ensure everyone can use the facilities safely. Please ask for a copy of the rules from the pool you wish to swim at so you can ensure you understand and comply with the operator’s requirements. All children under the age of eight should always be accompanied in the water and changing rooms during public swimming sessions by a parent, to a maximum of two children to one adult. Such sessions are those that are open for public recreational swimming as opposed to those under the direct control or instruction of a group organiser or class teacher/coach where different rules may apply.

A parent is defined as someone over the age of eighteen or younger if the person is the biological parent of the child or children. The parent 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. Parents who are supervising children must themselves determine that they have the required competencies to undertake this task.

Parents should be aware that operators, when looking at their own facilities and considering the guidance offered, will implement rules they feel best suits their individual circumstances. Parents would be advised, therefore, to make appropriate inquiries if the pool isn’t one they are familiar with. The operator will consider a multitude of factors for setting ratios including the following:

  • 3.1 The activity takes place in a designated safe area e.g. shallow pool, teaching pool, roped off shallow area of a standard pool etc.
  • 3.2 Approved floatation devices are worn by weak and non-swimmers.
  • 3.3 Any child not in an approved floatation device shall either be a babe in arms or who can demonstrate a standard of swimming ability in excess of the minimum set by the National Curriculum Key Stage 2 requirements and/or the ASA Learn to Swim Framework Phase 7 or equivalent.

Parents should also be aware that children over the age of eight, particularly those who cannot swim or are weak swimmers, may also require supervision of a similar level. Those responsible for the children must therefore consider the swimming abilities of all children and the appropriate supervision required, and heed the advice/instruction of the swimming pool staff.

Parents accompanying children to a pool should be able to take under eights into an ‘opposite sex’ changing room or alternative facilities should be provided. It is reasonable to assume that a child deemed too young to swim unaccompanied is also too young to look after him or herself in a changing room or to change unaccompanied.

Parents are advised to use only approved floatation devices compliant with BSN 13138 parts 1-3 – Buoyant Aids for Swimming Instruction as confirmed by the CEN mark. Baby neck support floats are not permitted in the pool.

  • Please inform a member of our team if you have a condition that could affect your safety within our facilities.
  • Please shower before using the swimming pool as this removes any grease, dirt or other chemicals often contained within make-up, hair products and deodorants.
  • Wearing a swim hat will help protect your hair and reduce water pollution.
  • Surfaces in the pool area are always wet, please take care and always walk.
  • Please do not swim if you have just eaten or drunk or if you have an upset stomach.
