  • Diving is not permitted in the shallow end of the main pool for safety reasons.

  • 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.

The swimming pools are open to Full and Country members and their guests in a limited capacity as follows: 

Full and Country members may invite guests for use of the swimming pools. For each membership household up to four guests are permitted per day to visit the Club for swimming (and/or tennis).

Please contact us by telephone on 01732 458261 option 2 to book your guests’ visit to the Club.

The fee is £10 per guest for swimming and/or tennis.

As we limit the number of guests permitted at the Club each day, guest tickets may not be available on the door.

Please note that 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.
