You now have access to our 25 metre, eight-lane swimming pool. We can't wait to welcome you

Your swimming membership

If you selected swimming as an activity option for your membership, you will now be able to access our 25 metre, eight-lane swimming pool. You can book on to any casual swimming and lane swimming sessions. If this wasn’t enough, you will also have unlimited access to the sauna and steam room. Whether you are looking to improve your fitness, or just have fun, you won’t be disappointed.

Step 1: What you need to know

First, you will need to familiarise yourself with the pool. Not only can it be seen from outside the building thanks to our extensive glazing, but you can also view the pool from the reception area. It is important to note that for each of your swimming sessions, you will need to book beforehand on the app. 

If you are an Ultimate member you will also be able to choose a designated under 16 swimmer, who will be able to use the swimming pool free of charge. 

If you have any questions surrounding your swimming membership, you can speak to a member of our team in person or via sport@port.ac.uk. We also recommend that you familiarise yourself with our terms and conditions and rules and regulations before your first visit with us.

Step 2: What you need to do

Before coming into Ravelin Sports Centre, you will need to download the UOP Sport App to see all of the session times that are available and book ahead before you arrive. You can find the full timetable for the swimming pool here. Please note that as a member, you will be able to book onto any lane swimming and casual swimming sessions, providing that there is space available.      

Make sure you bring along suitable swimwear and a towel to dry off after your swim. Check the approved swimwear document.
