Galashiels Swimming Pool

Overview

We have put new hygiene measures in place in line with COVID 19 regulations, and are staggering the start times of each lane to manage the amount of people in the changing village. Please arrive ‘beach ready’ just a couple of minutes before your session. More information can be found in our FAQ’s.

Currently we are not taking bookings for anybody under the age of 14 in general lane swimming sessions. We do have Junior Lane Swimming sessions available at all our open swimming pools for children aged 10 to 14 years and Family Swimming Sessions that are open to all ages.

Please book the lane to suit your ability or session plan. There will be a maximum of eight swimmers per double lane.

Family Swimming Sessions

Our pools will be split into ‘pods’ to allow each family to have their own exclusive area of the swimming pool and to ensure the safety of our participants.

A family pod can consist of up to five swimmers, with all participants needing to be from the same household to ensure Covid-19 guidance is followed.

A baby pool pod can consist of four swimmers, with children to be under the age of four, with all participants needing to be from the same household to ensure Covid-19 guidance is followed.

Equipment such as children’s arm discs/floating aids/toys can be brought to the session but will not be provided by Live Borders (no balls or throwing objects will be permitted).
