Public Swimming Term Time

Start your day with an Early Bird session, get fit or just have fun in any of our later public swimming sessions at Coventry Sports & Leisure Centre.

There is something for everyone including Ladies only, Family and Aquafit sessions running throughout the week. Changing facilities are available with separate space provided for males, females, families, groups and people with disabilities.

Coventry Sports & Leisure Centre offers:

  • An Olympic sized Swimming Pool, offering both 28m and 50m lane swimming.
  • 1, 3, and 5 metre diving boards open for use at specified times, and unique to Coventry.
  • Splash Pool offering a Waterfall Slide, Whirlpool Rapid Ride (non swimmers should not use this feature), Jet Stream (for competent swimmers only), Bubble Bath (for over 16's), Mushroom Fountain and Whizz Slide.

Please Note: We advise customers to call up on the day to avoid disapointment because some swimming sessions are very popular during weekends and school holidays.

GoSwim aims to encourage more people in Coventry to swim more often.

GoSwim is set to make a splash and get people who aren’t regular swimmers active and exercising in pools across the city. The initiative, a partnership between Coventry Sports Foundation, Coventry Sports Trust and Coventry City Council, is funded by Sport England and will see a range of events and sessions introduced over the next 12 months based on feedback about what stops local communities using the pools closest to them.

Activities will take place at the Foundation’s Xcel Leisure Centre in Westwood Heath, Centre AT7 on Bell Green Road and the Trust’s Coventry Sports and Leisure Centre on Fairfax Street in the city centre. More pool hours will be made available at all three sites and there will also be more fun splash sessions introduced at Centre AT7 to make sure there is something for all ages.

There will also be more Wave Raves, a family-friendly disco swimming session, which already runs in the city centre and was an idea suggested by local people.

Activities on offer will be suitable for people of all ages and abilities, with the goal of promoting swimming as a fun activity that can help you to stay fit and healthy.
