Recreational swimming

Please note, there's no need to book family swim sessions, just turn up! We recommend arriving early as spaces are limited. Howe Bridge Leisure Centre are still taking family swim bookings via telephone - visit Howe Bridge Leisure Centre page for contact information.

We manage a number of swimming pools across Wigan borough.

Swimming is available to the general public and members during scheduled swimming sessions 7 days a week.

Early morning lane swims are available at many pools with adult only swimming sessions available throughout the week.

A number of our swimming pools cater for younger children with small swimming pools located at Wigan, Leigh and Howe Bridge.

We offer Targeted Swim sessions (16+) that have been created specifically for individuals and groups with disabilities and other conditions to enjoy an allocated casual swim time. Sessions cost £2.90.
