2020 Pool Opening Information

Dear Friends of Jesus Green Lido

The Lido is looking great!

The pool will open officially on 25 July 2020. There will be some free Friends’ sessions (bookable) on Friday 24 July. The season will run to 30 August 2020.

Hours of operation will be Monday to Friday 07.00 to 19.00 hours; weekends 10.00 to 18.00 hours. Last bookable entry one hour before closure.

Important points to note and observe

All sessions are bookable in advance, one hour slots – running every ten minutes to spread arrivals and departures.  There is an App: Better UK which can be used to arrange membership (eg Pay and Play) and for booking sessions.  Otherwise book via their website. Sessions can be booked up to five days in advance for non-members and seven days for members.  The recommendation is to get registered via the App in advance.

Better have created a circular access and exit route around the facility. Please see the web-link at the end for guidance. There will be one inside shower available and one outside at either end, separate for men and women.

Only adults and children over the age of 11 years will be admitted, for lane swimming only. No sauna, no catering.

This means a different feel to the normal season, but we are very fortunate that Better and the Council have made considerable efforts to get the Lido open, so we all need to book and swim!


Booking opens on Tuesday 21 July at 18.00 hours.
