Swimming

Make a splash at either Havant or Waterlooville Leisure Centres. Each Centre has one of the best 25m swimming pools in the local area as well as a 13m splash pool. The pool at Waterlooville, which boasts a fantastic 300 capacity seated spectator area, hosts a variety of swimming galas and events throughout the year. With over 60 hours of public swimming time available at each 25m pool every week you can swim for fun and fitness at a time when it suits you. We also run a range of pool based Aqua Aerobics exercise classes at both sites as well as lane swimming and ladies-only sessions.
