Penguin Club is a disability swim session every Sunday afternoon at Bitterne Leisure Centre.

From now til March the session will be 15:15-16:00. You can attend the first few sessions for free to see how you get on. It will then be £10 which will cover you for the year.

You have access to both the teaching pool (32.2 degrees average temp) and the main pool (29 degree average temp). You can trial the session for free for the first few weeks to see how you get on. You then pay £10 to cover you for the whole year. There is a radar room that leads straight to poolside, 2 x family changing rooms, a female and a men’s changing room. There is a disabled toilet in the locker room too. There is a pool hoist to help people into the main pool and some small stairs that lead into the teaching pool.

The session is aimed at children with a disability and families to access recreational swimming and water activities.
