25m Swimming Pool


Below is a guide to help keep both our customers and staff safe:

  • The swimming pool will open at Lagan Valley LeisurePlex on Friday 7 August. Please click here for revised opening times.
  • To meet government guidelines for gathering limits and social distancing, pre-booking for all swimming sessions is essential at this time. Vitality Members can book online up to 7 days in advance and all other customers 3 days in advance. Walk-ins will not be permitted and customers will be declined entry without a prior booking.
  • Restricted changing facilities will be available.  Customers must arrive to the facility pool ready, ie, swimming costume should be worn below clothing. At pool side, customers will have access to a locker to store clothing and personal belongings. Showering and changing facilities will then become available at the end of each swimming session.
  • For the safety of our customers and to meet government guidelines, the circulation of fresh air will be increased throughout pool areas.  This will mean the ambient temperature around the pool may be slightly colder than normal.
  • Only lane swimming and segregated family swimming sessions will be available at this time. The diving boards will remain closed.
  • Lane swimming will be restricted to 4 people per lane and those aged 12+ years. Swimmers must swim clockwise and maintain social distancing at all times. Designated spots will be marked on the floor of the pool to identify areas swimmers can rest.
  • Family swimming will operate through segregated zones within the main pool and diving pool. These zones can only be booked for the use of individual families. Children under 4 must be supervised on a one adult to two children basis.
  • The child admission policy applies. All children under 4 years must be supervised by a responsible person over 16 years on a one to one basis. Children aged 4-7 years must be supervised on a one adult to two children ratio. Children aged 8+ years can only access the pool without supervision if they can to swim without the use of aids.
  • Swimming sessions will be restricted to 1 hour. Lane swimming must be booked online via the LeisurePlex website or through the Vitality App. Family session are only available to book by phoning reception on 028 9267 2121.
  • Customers must use the hygiene stations throughout the centre and adhere to the social distancing rules and one way system in operation throughout the centre.
  • Customers are reminded that should not travel to centres if they or anyone in their household have Covid-19 symptoms.  If a customer feels unwell during their visit, they are advised to speak to the Duty Manager on site.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our centres and we thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we all adapt to these new ways of operating.
