Swimming Pool & SWIMTAG
At Westwoods, we were the first Club in Scotland to offer SWIMTAG and its use is included within the cost of membership!
Members can wear a wristband which records lengths, time per length, strokes per length, calories burned and much more! It can be used by novice swimmers who are looking to improve their stroke and/or fitness, right up to professional athletes such as Commonwealth Gold Medalist Robbie Renwick (pictured) who helped launch SWIMTAG here at Westwoods and endorsed it as a great training aid!
Once you've completed your swim and handed your wristband back to reception, all you need to do is wait a short time and you'll be able to SEE YOUR SWIM online!
For a full demonstration you can visit the SWIMTAG website.
Pool Timetable and General Information
With the exception of 4-6 swimming galas that we run throughout the year, if we're open, our pool is open to members. We do run several activites including aquafit classes and swimming lessons which take up a section of the pool and we have family fun times as well as adult only times to cater for our wide range of members. Fettes College also use a section of the pool for an hour or two per day on average and we close the pool an hour early on two Sunday evenings per month for lifeguard training. Our pool is supervised by RLSS qualified lifeguards at all times.
We create a pool timetable each month as a guide for all members which can be downloaded below, along with our pool set up guide which illustrates how the pool is set up at certain times.
