Tollcross Swimming Pool refurbishment works

A large indoor swimming pool with swimming lanes

Tollcross International Swim Centre opened in 1997, quickly becoming a popular and important venue for all types of swimming. It is a well-used local pool, attracting over 1,000 visitors per day, and often serves as a major competition venue for local, national, and international swimming events.

The first phase of refurbishment on the 50m warm up pool is almost finished, and it is due to reopen to the public shortly. Once the warm up pool reopens, work can begin on the main pool, which will be closed to allow essential pool and plant repairs to take place.

During this time, all existing pool groups, including public swim sessions will relocate to the newly refreshed warm up pool. With the learner and splash pools remaining open.

This investment will ensure Tollcross International Swim Centre will be able to continue playing a vital role for swimming provision in the East End and serve as a host venue for swimming events.
