Make a SPLASH at Bitterne Leisure Centre and enjoy a Family Swim! We’ve divide our main pool into 4 sections and teaching pool into 2 sections to give you an exclusive section of the pool all to yourselves.

NOTE – When making a booking – please select ‘1 Adult’ – there is no need to add any other participants as this will increase the price for the session, which is £15 for the pool space for the hour.

In line with the current coronavirus restrictions, UK Active and Swim England guidance; please note the following important information ahead to booking your session:
