Swimming pool

The 50m swimming pool at University of Birmingham Sport & Fitness is a hub of activity: improving health, fitness and swimming ability in all ages. It has been designed and timetabled to ensure there are always lanes available for members to swim, therefore your swimming membership is never limited. Swim membership allows you access to the pool with a variety of sessions to cater for all. Your membership also includes use of the steam room and sauna to relax pre- or post- swim, although due to the current Covid-19 safety guidelines, these facilities are temporarily not in use.

Half of the pool has a moveable floor to enable shallower water for junior members, swimming lessons and less confident swimmers.

Please note: Visitors to the pool must bring their own clean, indoor footwear, or purchase reusable flip-flips from Reception to wear around the pool. You are also welcome in bare feet.


Join now to make the most of Birmingham’s biggest pool where the lanes are always available for you. We believe in giving members a customised membership which suits your needs, that’s why we provide everything from all inclusive to swim only with various payment options.
