Swimming Pool

Swimming is the ideal leisure activity for all ages to enhance stamina, condition your body, improve strength and flexibility or to simply have fun!

Farnworth Leisure Centre boasts a six lane 25m swimming pool - the keen swimmer will find lanes available for training, families can make a splash in one of the family fun sessions whilst children can go wild with the floats and inflatables in a pool party or mad splash session.

The workout class enthusiast will also find an extensive programme of aqua aerobics – a great way to improve fitness and muscle tone.

New Family Splash!

We have now introduced a Family Splash Session to our timetable, which is on every Sunday - 09:00 - 15:00 in the small pool. This new session has been designed to enable one parent or guardian to bring up to three children under the age of 8 into the pool, providing appropriate water aids are being worn by non-swimmers and the parent or guardian is in the water at all time. 

View the Pool Timetable and use the session descriptions on the right hand side to find the perfect session for you.
