Swimming at Bletchley

Whether you are looking for swimming lessons, wet and wild splash sessions, a venue for a kids pool party, a relaxing swim or an invigorating work out – we have the pool for you!

We have an 8 lane 25 metre certified competition swimming pool which is 0.9m at the shallow end with a continuous gradient down to 1.8m at the deep end. 

Swimming is a great form of general exercise and an excellent way to tone up and trim down. Just swimming a few lengths involves all the major muscle groups. Water supports your weight and takes the stress off your joints so you can put your body through a good work out without your knees, hips or spine paying the price.

Swimming can also be soothing, relaxing and best of all great fun! Visit Bletchley Leisure Centre today and find out more about swimming facilities in Milton Keynes.
