Halifax Swimming Pool

Halifax Swimming Pool


Halifax swimming pool is situated on the edge of Halifax town centre. It boasts an impressive 25 metre main pool, with diving facilities and a separate teaching pool. The centre also contains a gym with a separate free weights area. Alongside this are two squash courts and a dance studio. For when you just want to relax, you can unwind in the sauna/steam room and a relaxation area.

Here you can take part in our Learn to swim programme which is for adults and children. You can also take part in RLSS accredited lifesaving courses, competitive swimming training, diving and synchronized swimming.


Main pool

Our main swimming pool is great for fun and fitness alike. With both shallow and deep ends, this pool is widely accessible for all ages and capabilities. Our main pool also houses our 12ft diving pit. We have 3 diving boards of incrementing heights which provide a challenge for all skill levels.

We are committed to safety and we have fitted underwater CCTV in the diving pit. The cameras monitor activity beneath the surface of the water. This allows lifeguards to quickly detect anyone in difficulty in the diving pit, even if they are at the bottom of the pool. Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is in use throughout Calderdale and a code of practice ensures that data protection principles are complied with; Find out more.

Teaching pool

The teaching pool is a smaller and shallower pool designed specifically for younger children and teaching. This pool is used for parent and child lessons such as Aqua Babies.

  • Treadmills
