Swimmingly pool hire agreement
We appreciate your co-operation in reading and agreeing to these conditions, we recognise there are quite a few ‘rules’ but the pool is our livelihood and we need to ensure it is kept in great condition. Thanks for your help.
The hirer and his/her group is permitted to use the pool, changing rooms and car park at 15 Uppingham Drive Ramsbottom BL0 9DP entirely their own risk.
The pool is in a residential area and we need to make sure we do not cause disruption to our neighbours. Cars must be parked in the designated gravelled parking area. We will ask you to move cars that are parked anywhere else. Please only come across to the pool cabin at your appointment time, do not come up to the house.
The pool is unsupervised; there is no lifeguard. It is the hirer’s responsibility to ensure the members of their group can swim adequately or use the correct swim aids.
The hirer is responsible for the safety and behaviour of their group at all times whilst on site and will ensure the Rules of the pool are read, understood and observed by everyone at all times.
Each session lasts one hour and includes changing time. If you arrive late for your session the session will finish at the original time. Please ensure that you leave on time and leave the pool, changing & toilet facilities as clean and tidy as they were when you arrived and report any issues.
CCTV is in use in the pool building, please see here for our CCTV Code of Conduct which forms part of this hire agreement.
Pool hire sessions once booked are non-refundable but can be rescheduled up to 48 hours of the original booked time – please contact Sarah Hill 07966 005558 to reschedule
Maximum number using the pool is 4.
Enter and exit the pool by the steps only
We monitor our water quality very carefully and to help preserve our clean environment, we ask that all swimmers shower before entering the water and wear a swim cap whilst in the pool. Please do not use talcum powder in any area.
Do not walk around the wooden edge of the pool, it is not designed to be walked on and may not support your weight.
No food or hot drinks in the pool area. No glass containers.
No swimming under the influence of alcohol and drugs. We retain the right to refuse entry to anybody appearing to be under the influence.
The pool is not deep enough for adults or children over the age of 8 to jump in safely. Children aged under 8 can jump in from the side with supervision. Do not dive in as the pool is not deep enough.
All children under 18 must be supervised by an adult
If your child isn’t toilet trained they need to have watertight swimwear over a swimming nappy; waterproof nappies alone are not sufficient. Please report any mishaps immediately – the pool will need to be closed and you may be asked to pay for the expenses incurred in cleaning the pool.
The ‘Fastlane’ unit at the end of the pool is a very valuable piece of kit so please do not climb on it or swing on the handle. It will be checked and tested before and after each session and any damage will become your liability.
