There are 2 swimming pools at RVLC
Main Pool is 25m long, 10m wide marked for 5 lanes. Depths range from 1.0m to 2.0m.
The Learner Pool is 15m by 10m and is 1m deep. There is also a splash area at one end of the Learner Pool which is only a few inches deep, ideal for the younger child. We run most of our swimming lessons in this pool, together with our popular Parent & Toddler Swim Sessions on Mondays & Fridays from 10-11am. More information can be found in the centre classes pages.
Sessions in the pools during public swimming times are 55 mins long and start every 15 mins.
Early morning swim sessions normally run from 7:30am - 9:25am, Monday, Wednesday & Friday.
During school term times, lunchtime swims are available 12:15pm - 1:25pm Monday to Friday.
During School holidays the Public Swimming Times will vary and sessions quoted above may be subject to alteration.
