Peterlee Leisure Centre

Swimming is a great way to improve fitness, tone up and burn calories. Its low-impact too so there’s less risk of injury and it’s a great addition to other training programmes.

October Half Term Swimming Lessons

Swimming lesson crash courses will be held every day Monday to Friday 9am till 9.30am and 9.30am till 10am. Ideal for children who want to learn how to swim or improve their swimming. A five day course will cost just £15.

Pool Safety for Children

You must decide what level of supervision each child needs from you in the light of his/her swimming ability and the water depth and features of our swimming pool.
As a minimum, each child under 8 must be directly supervised in the water by its parent, or an adult (aged 18 or over). This is recommended by the Health & Safety Executive.
No more than 2 children under 8 may be supervised by one parent or adult (aged 18 or over).

Pool Water Hygiene

Please help us to keep the pool water clean and clear for your bathing enjoyment. Before entering the pool:

  • Use the toilet
  • Have a shower
  • Blow your nose
  • Ensure that your swimwear is clean
  • Ensure that babies/ small children wear swim nappies if required

If you have had diarrhoea, you MUST NOT swim until you have been symptom free for at least 48 hours.

Opening Times – Saturday and Sunday 9am till 7pm
