So I have been a member at the Sports Centre here at Edge Hill for just over a month now and whilst I am enjoying all of the facilities available to me as part of my membership, one thing I have really been loving is the 25 metre swimming pool!
Me and my friends have been going at least three times a week and we all enjoy it so much. There is a designated lane for those of you who want to really get to it! But we enjoy just swimming up and down and chatting at the same time. The pool is a really good size and even when it is busy you still feel like you have plenty of room without worrying about getting in someones way.
They also have started playing music in the swimming pool which adds an extra element of enjoyment. One thing I really enjoy is not being able to go on my phone for an hour or so and whilst I am getting really good exercise I feel like I can switch off from uni work. The swimming pool also houses the health suite which consists of a steam room and a sauna available to premium members.
The facilities within are also excellent. There are showers and lots of changing space. As well as a machine that dries your swimming costume which I love! Also, there are also swimming lessons available to both children and adults whether you are a beginner at swimming or just need a refresher if its been a long time!
