Supporters Feedback

  • A nice small community swimming pool. My kids have swimming lessons here and really love it. It is clean and whilst a little dated it is well maintained and has a nice smaller family atmosphere. Prices are good and it is not too busy. Overall I recommend it strongly.

  • Very impressed with Oakland's, good communication via email, professional and knowledgeable on phone and in person. Great swimming instructor, well organised and good clean facilities.

  • A great, accessible, community-run facility with plenty of different swimming options and a flume. Swimming lessons do not shut the whole pool so it's possible to have a dip while your child has their lesson. Adult swim for £3.50 compares very favourably with Romsey Rapids and the quays. Minor quibbles are minimum £5 spend on a card, limited showering and hair-dryers only available in female changing (only a drawback if you have a young daughter with long hair like me
