Swimming Pool

Vue de la piscine à partir d'un angle de plongée.

The Aquatic Centre contains a 50 metres by 18 metres Olympic size swimming pool. During most activities, a mobile wall divides the pool in two equal sections of 25 meters by 18 meters. The shallow end varies from 1.4 to 1.6 meters in depth and the deep end varies from 2 to 5 meters in depth. There is a diving tower with platforms at 3 and 5 metres.

You can borrow, free of charge, kick boards, pull buoys, lifejackets, balls, and more.
