Junior Rules

Swimming Pool area All children (aged 0-15), regardless of swimming ability, must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult (aged 16+) who can swim competently. Adults must supervise their children in the pool according to the following ratios:

One child aged 0 – 4 years : one adult in the water  –  Two children aged 5 – 8 years : one adult in the water  – Three children aged 9 -15 years : one adult in the water or next to the pool

  • Weak or non-swimmers should wear arm bands or a buoyancy/flotation aid whilst in the pool and only enter the deep end of the pool with a competent adult.
  • Children must not be left unsupervised in carriers or pushchairs on the side of the pool.
  • Children that are not fully potty-trained must wear swim nappies (available to purchase from reception); these must be disposed of in the nappy bin. Standard nappies are not appropriate.
  • The steam room & sauna are for adults – and children aged 14 -15 (who must be accompanied by an adult)
  • The jacuzzi is for adults – and children aged 8 -15 (who must be accompanied by an adult)

Adults with children will be advised of this policy by reception staff and asked to confirm that they understand it before proceeding to the pool. Reception staff will only allow admission to children that are accompanied by a competent adult. If adequate supervision is not provided, management may ask children to leave the pool area.
