Booking is no longer needed for Swim For All public sessions so you can just turn up and swim. You'll still need to check the pool timetables beforehand, as some of our opening hours and activity programmes remain limited.
Pre-booking lane swimming is still recommended as we've had positive feedback from lots of customers who prefer this system to manage the number of swimmers in each lane. However, you can still turn up and swim as long as there is space available in your chosen lane.
Registering for swimming lessons
You can pre-register for children's swimming lessons and we will send you a booking link and information. We are currently taking new bookings at Blaydon and Dunston Leisure Centres with some limited availability at Birtley, Heworth and Gateshead Leisure Centres. More spaces will be released soon.
