Swimming Pool

SPLISH SPLASH.

Our brand new pool uses a state-of-the-art geothermal base heating system. It’s pretty special, as this system is the largest of its type in rural and regional Australia. At 25 metres in length with 6 lanes, it’s the perfect place to enhance your fitness!

The heating system we use is programmed to regulate temperature across the extreme variations of weather experienced in Armidale.
It utilises the earth’s core to produce heat to regulate the temperature. And has been implemented with UNE’s sustainability measures in mind.

This system will reduce SportUNE’s annual CO2 emissions by approximately 197,000kg, which is equivalent to the CO2 absorbed by 8,000 trees.

Big news, we’re aiming to have a Swim School and lessons in the very near future!

We would like your input to help us build a community Swimming School that suits you and your family.

Pool Etiquette

During peak times, you may be required to share a lane.

Please follow the below rules:

1. Look for an open lane

2.If sharing a lane, ask the swimmer if they would like to split or circle swim.
Splitting a lane: 2 people per lane, each person takes a side of the lane (right or left)
Circle swimming: 2 – 3 people per lane, swim down the left side each way. Stay close to the lane so people are able to pass if required.

3. If you are joining a lane, ensure the swimmers are aware that you are getting in

4. If you would rather not share a lane, please swim at off-peak times

5. Slower swimmers should yield faster swimmers 

6.Resting: If you stop to rest, move to the corner of the lane where you approach the wall rather than in the middle of the lane. It makes it easier for those swimming to get around you.
