The swimming pool at Pendle Wavelengths has many features that will keep all ages entertained. There is a roof-high water slide with black hole feature, a sloping beach area and a wave machine which operates at regular intervals.
There is lots of fun for children at Pendle Wavelengths, including themed sessions such as Splash Down on Thursdays, between 7pm and 9pm. Every Saturday, between 2pm and 3pm, we have the Pool Inflatable in the water, which is great fun for all the family.
The swimming pool can also be used for swimming competitions and has six lanes that can be utilised.
For those looking to relax or swim lengths without disruption, our Early Birds swim is adults only and held between 7am and 8.30am every morning (except Wednesday). We also have adult-only swimming sessions on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7pm until 8pm.
The pool offers a lot more than just swimming. We also have aquatic fitness classes, including Exercise for Health, Aquarythmics and ladies-only sessions too.
Learn, improve and get fit at Pendle Wavelengths. Whatever your age or ability, we have swimming lessons and courses for everyone.
Classes for ‘water babies’ are designed to introduce youngsters to the delights of water and give them confidence in the pool. Skills are taught in a relaxed environment through the use of games, toys, music and movement exploration.
Junior lessons follow the ASA National Teaching Plan, from Stage 1 – non-swimmer to Stage 7 – advanced. The 30 minute structured classes are taught by qualified swimming instructors and are available on a 10 week course.
Adult lessons are less structured, catering for each individual’s needs.
Private Swimming Lessons – Swimming lessons for children run every week night, as well as Saturday and Sunday mornings. For more information on swimming lessons click here.
Parent and Child Lessons – These sessions are designed to help introduce your child to the water and build their confidence. All the classes are run by qualified swimming teachers who are on hand to provide assistance and advice.
Babies are welcome once they have had their first injections or on the advice of your midwife.
Tadpole Lessons – These lessons are for young children who are confident in the water, but not old enough to join the private swimming lessons. This is a good progression route from the Parent and Child Lessons and are available at Pendle Wavelengths during term time only.
Adult Lessons – Adults can learn to swim with help and advice from our qualified instructors. Remember you are never to old to learn to swim. Its an excellent way of staying fit and healthy.
