Sessions at Copeland Pool
Our pool sessions are normally very busy.
They are held on Tuesday nights at Copeland Fitness Centre and Swimming Pool, Cleator Moor Road, Hensingham, Whitehaven. CA28 8RW, T 01946 696 049. You can leave a message for us with the staff if you wish. Please contact the club either in person or via the website contact us page before your first visit as we do not like disappointing people.
Age of juniors- we normally say that juniors should be at least 10 years of age: if they are with a paddling parent / guardian they may be aged 8 or 9 - however we reserve the right to check that they are confident swimmers (for their own safety) before accepting them as members.
Members and visitors should follow the Code of Conduct (in full on the website) which is printed in part on the Membership Form.
