Waltham Pool

We are really pleased to announce this absolute gem will be more accessible to you this summer.

This outdoor, heated 33m pool really is an underrated, underutilized, jewel in the crown of swimming pools available in Christchurch. It comes complete with complimentary fresh air, sunshine, grass space to relax and a friendly welcome.

The Outdoor Swimmers Club have negotiated additional opening hours for YOU. For this summer on behalf of Christchurch City Council the doors to Waltham Lido will be open Monday to Friday, 0600-0900, November to March.

You can choose to come down for casual lane swimming, participate in a squad, or develop your swimming with a 121 lesson, all delivered by FitandAbel staff. Swimming starts 0600 Monday 16 November. Minimum age is 18yrs. Anyone under this age needs to be swimming with an adult.

As part of our CCC agreement, you do need to become a member of the Outdoor Swimmers Club to use the pool during the 0600 – 0900 times. The good news is, there is NO additional membership fee. Simply purchase your casual swim pass, squad pass or 121 lesson through TeamUp and you will become a club member.

Casual lane swimming passes, squads and 121 lessons are all available to be booked now. Sign up early and make your entry easy peasy!
Minimum swimming ability for our coached squads at Waltham is 1000m continuous in the pool. This is to ensure you feel comfortable and can focus on the skills being taught. If you are not yet at this level we recommend having a private lesson with Dan or Chloe. We can support your development and help you build to a capable level.

This outdoor facility is a very special place and we encourage you to use it. Not only for your swimming fix and training sessions, but also as a place to meet new people, share swimming stories and engage with the swimming community.

These six clinics over summer are to support your open water swimming skills and development. Below is an outline detailing what each clinic will cover. Minimum swimming ability for attending these clinics is 1500m continuous in the pool. This is to ensure you feel comfortable whilst in the open water and can focus on the skills being taught. If you are not yet at this level we recommend attending our Waltham Pool coached groups or having a private lesson with Dan or Chloe. We can support your development and help you build to a capable open water level.
