The 1Leisure swimming pools in Newport (Medina) and Sandown (The Heights) are open for lane swimming Monday-Saturday and family swimming on Sundays.

Swimmers must arrive beach ready as changing rooms will only be open for changing when exiting the pool. Changing rooms will be open but showers and lockers will remain closed. There are designated boxes around the swimming pool for you to store your valuables.

Lane swimming is open to competent swimmers offering slow, medium and fast lane sessions with a limit on the number of customers to achieve the two-metre social distancing rules.

The government’s Test and Trace regulations require the name and contact details of every customer over the age of 16.  We will therefore have to record your details if you’re attending the casual family swimming sessions on Sunday.
