At Wirksworth pool, many school children, who haven’t had the opportunity to learn to swim as babies and toddlers, will be introduced to swimming for the first time.
Our small pool and warm waters make swimming an inviting and pleasurable experience. We have helped hundreds of nervous and apprehensive children to not only meet the national curriculum required standard of 25 metres, but to achieve beyond it.
Wirksworth pool is a calm, warm and stimulating environment ideally suited for water-based exercise and enjoyment in group swimming lessons for those with sensory or muscular disabilities or those rehabilitating after injury or surgery.
Unfortunately we have limited wheelchair access at this time due to the building design, but are committed to improving our facilities and are currently raising funds for an extension which includes better wheelchair access.
