Summer swimming sessions

2020 Family Swimming Sessions

If you would like to book a slot please email; cowfoldcommunitypool@gmail.com, this must be done more than 24 hours before the slot.  Sessions are for one family at a time, due to Covid19 distancing and cleaning that will be carried out between slots.  Sessions are £20 for the hour and this cost includes the cost of the lifeguard who will be on duty.  Details of how to make payment will be given when booking is made. Please consider that the pool is open whatever the weather, and if you cancel at the last minute, we are unlikely to refill the slot, but we still have to pay our Lifeguard.

Slots will be allocated in order of emails being received and may not show as booked on the calendar if the email has not been processed yet.

Enjoy your swim!! 🙂
