Admission policy

Children under the age of eight years MUST be accompanied at all times in the water by a responsible person of at least 16 years of age.

One responsible person may accompany two children, under the age of eight in the water at all times. However, only one child may be under the age of 5 years. Children's swimming ability will NOT override this policy under any circumstances.

Children who wear armbands/use floatation aids are not permitted in the deep end of the pool or on the giant inflatable during floats sessions due to health & safety restrictions. Children may also be asked to conduct a 'swim test' if the lifeguards on duty do not feel they are safe to be in the deep end / on the giant inflatable. In the interest of the safety of our swimmers, lifeguards are able to restrict pool usage at their discretion.
