Whether you're looking for fitness or fun, swimming has it all! Nottingham City Council leisure centres offer a varied programme of swimming activities to suit all ages and abilities.

We have 7 fantastic swimming pools which run a comprehensive range of sessions.

Love Swimming: because their console doesn’t work underwater

Nottingham City Council is supporting #LoveSwimming campaign to inspire families to swap screen time for swim time and Love Swimming.

In the digital age, families are spending a great deal of time in front of their screens.

#LoveSwimming campaign is trying to encourage families to put down their consoles, switch their TVs off and come down to your nearest pool. We have a variety of family based swim sessions available at our 7 swimming pools. To find a right swim session for you, call us on 0115 876 1600 or visit www.booknottinghamsport.co.uk or download our NCCSport app.
