Event Disruption 1st - 23rd April
The training pool, competition pool and commercial wing at Tollcross International Swimming Centre will be closed from 1st until 23rd April 2014 due to three world-class events taking place in the facility - The Scottish Gas National Open Swimming Championships, The British Para International Meet and the 2014 British Gas Swimming Championships.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The rest of the venue will continue to operate as normal although we would like to advise customers that parking will be extremely limited during this time.
Many thanks for your understanding.
As part of the £14m redevelopment of Tollcross International Swimming Centre we have added a second 50 metre pool to the venue.
Tollcross Second Swimming Pool
But why would they add a second swimming pool I hear you ask? Well in the main it was to make sure that our customers had even more access to excellent swimming facilities. The majority of times now going forward we will be able to continue our lesson programme and casual swimming while we host events or training sessions in the other pool.
Main Swimming Pool
The main swimming pool now boasts an extra 1000 seats. This will increase in games mode making space for 5000 spectators. Just think, when Robbie or Michael are coming up the home straight in the lead the atmosphere is going to be electric.
The new training pool is a 6 lane, 50m pool with a movable floor. This will be used as the training, warm up and warm down pool during the games and will be used on a day to day basis for our casual swimming sessions and our lesson programme.
