We offer ‘quiet adult /disabled swim’ sessions for those that may require extra assistance. These sessions cater for disabled customers of any age and anyone else over the age of 16 who would like a quieter swim.
These sessions are for those with a disability. Please be aware there will be people with seen and unseen disabilities. We ask everyone to be respectful of this. The session may on occasions be noisy. Disabled children are welcome to these sessions. Adults are welcome for a gentle swim.
Our unique facilities include the following:
Disability ramp for ease of access into the pool – the only one of its kind in Sheffield
Free admission for carers helping a disabled person take part in an activity.
A pool hoist to assist you in getting you into and out of the pool and an electronic hoist to transfer from wheelchairs to the poolside chair. If you are using our electronic hoist please ensure you bring your own sling.
Four individual and private disabled cabinets, equipped with a shower, hand basin and toilet will provide you with plenty of room to get yourself changed.
Increased water temperature to 31 degrees.
