The Pool has now CLOSED for the winter

How we operated was very different from normal. Here are the main changes:

  • All swimmers must book and pay in advance, before entering the pool site.

  • Different price structure, with no Discount Tickets available.

  • Swimmers must come "beach ready" as changing rooms will be unavailable.

  • Due to COVID-19 requirements, the maximum number of swimmers permitted will be quite a bit fewer than normal.

  • Session types are limited to Early Birds, Household Bubbles, Lane Swimming and Private Hire. There will be NO General Swimming sessions. 

  • Session lengths will be shorter.

  • The session time includes changing both before and after swimming, in a designated poolside area.

  • NO spectators

  • Chlorine levels will be a little higher, to be in accordance with Swim England guidance. 

Please read our COVID-19 User Guidance (last updated 21/7/2020)

Charges, Session Layout and Requirements for 2020

Lane Swimming

 

2 no. 20m x 4m lanes, 1 for slower swimmers and 1 for faster swimmers, both moving clockwise.

A maximum of 4 swimmers per lane.

  • Please arrive promptly at the start of the session, pool ready (the changing rooms will not be open). Bring as little as possible with you but do bring a bag to put all your clothes and other belongings in.

  • Enter using the top gate, sanitise your hands, follow the signs. Maintain social distancing at all times. Change and leave your bag in the designated area.

  • Swim clockwise in the appropriate lane (fast/slow). Only overtake at the ends of the lane. If someone faster is coming up let them pass before pushing off.

  • Change on poolside and leave promptly at the end of the session so that the lifeguard can sanitise the facilities before the next session.

  • Only one person to use the toilet facilities at a time.

Household Bubble Sessions

4 no. 10m x 4m areas - Shallow End (L), Shallow End (R), Deep End (L), Deep End (R).  When booking, you will be required to choose which area of the pool to go in.

Pool Programme

 

This may change as the season progresses.

 

The pool season has been extended to 27th September. The extended programme is on the pool web page. Weekday sessions have changed for term time, with no sessions during school hours as the pool is on the school site. Weekend sessions have also changed.

Private Hire

Whole pool available

A maximum of 6 customers (as "Rule of 6" Government Guidance)

ALTERNATIVELY
You can hire the pool and operate it as either a Household Bubble Session, or a Lanes Session. But Social distancing must be maintained. If set out for a lanes session, lanes must be used accordingly, with ALL swimmers circulating clockwise. Numbers for a HH bubble session layout would be a maximum of 8 people in each area. For a lanes session layout, a maximum of 8 swimmers would be permitted.

Hire Charge £40/hr

  • "Booking Weeks" start on a Monday and private hires must be booked by the Saturday before (i.e. 2 to 9 days in advance of your desired booking). This enables us to manage our lifeguard rota effectively and to consider additional public sessions in that week.  But you are strongly advised to contact us well in advance, otherwise you may find that your desired slot has already been taken.

About Chudleigh Community Swimming Pool

 

The pool opened for the 2020 season on Saturday 25th July and closed on Sunday 27th September.

The pool is 20 metres long and 8 metres wide. It's depth is 1 metre at the shallow end and 1.4 metres at the deep end.  So adults can stand on the bottom over its whole area.

 

Water temperature is normally between 28 and 29 degrees C and is partially heated by solar panels.

Pool Shelter: Unbelievably, our large wood framed shelter was raised and commissioned in one day in 2008.  It provides shade when sunny and shelter when wet so no need to worry about the weather!
