Widely regarded as one of the best ways to work multiple parts of the body with limited pressure on joints, swimming is a great way to stay in shape and stay healthy. Each of the swimming pools at our centres are highly maintained to ensure the perfect swimming environment and with a wide selection of swimming sessions available you can choose the best session to suit you.

With seven swimming pools across our Barnsley and Bassetlaw leisure centres, we have everything you need for a relaxing or energetic swim from a quiet adult only lane swim to an exciting fun-filled family day out at Calypso Cove waterpark.
