Swim Fit Public Lanes

Swim-fit sessions must be booked and booking is available up to a day in advance. Please click here for details of how to book your session.

Pay-as-you-swim bookings for the 50m London 2012 Legacy Pool allow access for the duration of your booked session and are priced at the following:

Public – Adults: £5.20. Concessions: £4.60.

University of Bath students – Sports Pass holders: free (for more information about activating your Sports Pass, please visit our student offer page).

Staff – £4.60.

No-shows and cancellations policy – updated May 2021

We are experiencing a rise in the number of people who book a swimming session in advance but then do not appear.  Demand for swim bookings is high right now and if you cannot make a session for any reason, please proactively cancel it through our booking system so that someone else can take the slot.

We are now actively monitoring the situation and will institute a system from Monday, 17th May onwards which provides customers with an initial warning for non-cancellation and then a cancellation fee of between £2.80-£3.30 for second and subsequent instances.

* Many customers will be aware that we have groups of performance athletes in a vital pre-Olympic and Paralympic Games training period and some variances to our traditional booking slots in the pool have occurred in order to create a safe, dedicated space for them. The loss of the main midweek daytime public swim sessions (Session 2) is temporary and will apply until the athletes depart for final preparation camps. We hope you will be supportive of this.
