Woughton Swim Timetable
Swimming is a great way to improve fitness, tone up and burn calories, plus it’s low-impact so there’s less risk of injury. At Woughton Leisure Centre we have a heated 20m swimming pool that is open to the public and also hosts our successful ASA approved Swim School. Our timetable includes general swim, adult swim, family swim and splash sessions, 50+ Swim Club, therapy swim, plus a variety of Aqua group exercise classes for members and customers to enjoy. Public swimming sessions work on a first come first serve basis, so make sure you check the timetable and get there in plenty of time to make the most of your swimming!
Swimming Fun Facts
~ Just 30 minutes of steady paced lane swimming burns over 200 calories – well over 400 hundred in an hour!
~ Swimming is great exercise for your heart. As you are using your whole body, your heart has to extra work hard to pump blood to your arms and legs, increasing your heart rate and strengthening your heart muscle.
~ The pressure and resistance of moving in the water means your body has to work much harder – 30 minutes of activity in the swimming pool is worth 45 minutes of the same style activity on land.
~ Being in water can have great psychological and rehabilitation benefits too – for those who manage injury or disability, the water can help support your weight, plus leaves you feeling totally refreshed and relax.
Child safety in the Swimming Pool
All children under the age of 8 must be supervised by an adult over the age of 18 at all times when in the facility. The child’s responsible adult must decide what level of supervision each child needs in the light or his/her swimming ability, water depth and features of the swimming pool.
As a minimum, children under the age of 8 must be accompanied in the water at all times by an adult over the age of 18. One adult may accompany and fully supervise no more than two children under the age of 8 years.
