Swimming Pool Rules


  • The main pool is heated from 1 April, and reaches 28 to 30 degrees celsius during the summer. The children’s pools are also heated. The pool temperatures will vary depending on the outside temperature so please check the blackboards in the pool area.
  • Children may not enter the fenced swimming pool area without an adult member. It is essential that members supervise their children (aged 16 and under) at the poolside at all times when swimming and when in the swimming pool area.
  • No member under 16 or guest under 18 (with a valid Guest Ticket, see ‘Guests’) may swim or be in the swimming pool area without the poolside supervision of an adult Full or Country member and their parent(s) if on the premises (with a valid Guest Ticket). The adult member is responsible for their conduct and safety.
  • For your own safety, please read the pool rules signs located in the pool area prior to swimming. Please also take notice of the pool depth markings.
  • We recommend that you do not swim alone.
  • Diving is not permitted in the shallow end of the main pool for safety reasons.
  • Diving is forbidden in the middle and paddling pools.
  • Non-swimmers and learners, who are being supervised by a responsible adult as detailed above, may only use the middle pool, paddling pool and the shallow end of the main swimming pool.
  • Please refrain from running and jumping around the pool.
  • Lilos, balls, flippers or similar articles are not allowed in the pool. Only non-swimmers are allowed inflatables to assist with their swimming.
  • No-one may indulge in such activities as pushing or throwing others into the water, ducking or similar horse-play in or around the pool; no ‘bombing’.
  • Please do not swim within one and a half hours after the consumption of food.
  • Please do not consume alcohol in the pool area.
  • Glasses, bottles and crockery are not permitted in the pool area. Plastic glasses and disposable plates are available from the bar.
  • The fenced swimming pool area is non-smoking.
  • In case of emergency please sound the alarm and use the phone by the pool to summon assistance.


Full and Country members may invite guests to join them poolside, swim and play tennis. For each membership household up to four guests are permitted per day to visit the Club for this.

The fee is £10 per guest for guests to join you in the fenced pool area (and/or on the tennis court) (‘Guest Ticket). The fee applies to all guests age 3+.

The adult member must accompany their guest(s) for the duration of the visit and is responsible for the visitor(s) strictly observing the Club Rules and House RulesGuests may only remain at the Club with the member who has signed them in for the duration of the visit.

If you are bringing guests to the Club and will be swimming or entering the pool area you are required to buy Guest Tickets for every guest so that they may accompany you to the pool area even if they are not swimming. This is because all of your guests must remain with you for the duration of the visit including when you are within the fenced swimming pool area, and guest children must be adequately supervised by their parent(s) at the poolside.

You must pay for Guest Tickets in advance of entering the pool area and using the facilities so either by telephone or at the welcome desk when you arrive. Please note that Guest Tickets may be limited on the busiest days at the discretion of the Club.

You are required to pay for guests in the fenced pool area (or on the tennis courts) even if they are not swimming or playing.

Non-member guests may visit the Club up to four times in any year, with the view that they would be interested in joining in their own right after this number of visits.
