Main Pool at Ards Blair Mayne

Main Pool

The 25-metre Main Pool is for public, adult only and family public swimming, as well as lessons, classes and club bookings.

The pool has six lanes. Two lanes have a permanent depth of 2 metres. A wall separates the static lanes from the four lanes that have a moveable floor, adjustable to a maximum depth of 2 metres to 1 metre to accommodate the various activities that take place. Swimmers will be asked to leave the pool for the few minutes it takes to adjust the floor height, an alarm will sound when the floor is being moved.

A 160-seat Spectator Gallery overlooks the Main Pool. Access into the pool is via steps, ladders and a modern deck level platform for disabled access.

Minor Pool

The 21-metre Minor Pool is perfect for lessons and activities such as our Kayaking course. It is also home to the Aqua Run.

It has a moveable floor to a maximum depth of 2 metres. Swimmers will be asked to leave the pool when the pool depth needs to be changed.

Access to the pool is via steps, ladders and a modern deck level platform for disabled access.
