 Barker Community - Access to the Aquatic Centre

The Barker Foundation Aquatic Centre is open to the Barker Community for access and use of the 25metre pool for adults (16+) for individual fitness and swimming. In addition, our 17 metre pool is also available for rehab / walking.
Access is available throughout various evenings and weekends during term time.

Lap swimming etiquette:

• Please be mindful of other swimmers and keep to the left hand side of the lane. Please observe signage located at the end of the pool, indicating fast, medium and slow lanes. Please choose a lane that suits your speed.
• Select a lane based on your ability and strokes(s) you intend to swim during your visit. Note that some lanes indicate breaststroke is not permitted.
• If you have to move across any lanes, check both directions before moving. When waiting at the end of the pool, move across towards the corners of the lane to allow other swimmers to continue swimming laps.
