    The pool is located at Brookes Sport Botley and serves the local community in the Botley and North Hinksey areas of Oxford as well as the students and staff from Oxford Brookes University.

    Heated to just over 30 degrees, it is the perfect environment to relax and unwind. The pool is also highly suitable for young children learning to swim, and from those who are swimming to recover from injury. The pool measures 25 by 8.5m, and is 1m depth in the shallow end and 3m depth in the deep end.

    The pool can be used with one of our inclusive membership plans or on a pay as you go basis.

    See the pool timetable for details of when the pool is available for open or lane swimming.
