Maidstone Leisure Centre Mote Ave, Maidstone ME15 7RN
Our club meets at Maidstone Leisure Centre from about 11.45 am till 1.30 pm every Tuesday.
We have sole use of half the Fitness pool, the Boom pool and the large Teaching pool between 12.00 and 1.00pm.
There are no formal lessons. Members are given assistance based on their individual needs.
For those who can swim unaided, the Fitness Pool is available to them to swim at their own leisure in an uncrowded environment. However, we have qualified volunteers for those who wish to develop water skills or simply benefit from the freedom of moving in water.
For those in need of a confidence boost try our Boom pool under the watchful eye of our qualified volunteers.
For those needing a little extra support, must be accompanied in the pool with their carer.
An Aqua Aerobics session is held in the Teaching Pool for those with slow or limited mobility, but must be able to stand unaided, otherwise must be accompanied by a carer.
All of the pools will encourage our members to enjoy the many benefits and improve their Health, Well Being and Social Skills in and out of the water.
There is a hoist in all pool areas to assist those with physical disabilities to get in and out of the pools.
We also have a Dipper Pool Hoist Spreader Bar, which can assist members who bring in their own slings.
