Early Morning Swimming Lanes Set-Up

We would like to thank everyone who took time to speak with our staff regarding the changes to the swimming lanes timetable, and for those who fed back through comment cards.  From these combined sources of information, we know that we have a wide range of diverse users in the swimming sessions with many differing individual needs.

The recent changes to the pool timetable were made specifically to support the enhanced swimming program now offered by the University’s Team Surrey Swimming Club for students studying with us.

Previously, through its close ties with Guildford City Swimming Club, the University Club has had a strong program from beginners to club swimmers for several years. However, we have recently been announced as a partner of Swim England to become one of only five swimming performance centres in the country.  These centres are designed to offer an elite level swimming programme alongside academic support for talented athletes.

We do understand that these changes may have affected your enjoyment of the pool. Therefore after careful consideration of the comments received and in-line with our commitment to University Student swimming programmes highlighted above, the following alterations will be in place from 1 October 2018:

Between the hours of 06.00 -08.30 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from Saturday from 09.00 – 11.00:

One slow lane, one medium lane and one fast lane.

Whilst we acknowledge that this will not accommodate every individual need, we do believe that this is the most sensible solution for a 50m session. Our programme attempts to cater for individuals and groups of all levels and abilities.

Obviously we review our timetables regularly and will always take feedback into account, so please do continue to submit your comments via the cards available at reception.
