2015 Opening Times

Better have announced the 2015 opening times:

These seem to be similar to last year with three early days – Monday, Tuesday and Friday.  The pool will close on 20th September.


2015 Season – First Information


Latest news is that the 2015 season will open for public swimming on Saturday 9th May.

However as last year, GLL (Better) plan to open the pool on the evening of Friday 8th May to host a quick pre-season dip to which Friends of Jesus Green Pool are invited.

More details will be posted and dates and times confirmed as soon as we have them.

Less than 2 months to go!


Late Season Opening Update 2

Following the cancellation of the triathlon the pool will now close on Friday 19th September with reduced opening hours from Monday 15th.  Please check the Better website for details:

The usual informal end of season bring and share picnic will be from 2pm on Sunday 14th Sept (last Sunday of the season) at the pool.


Late Season Opening – Update


We have just heard that the triathlon event using the pool, scheduled for 28th Sept, has been cancelled.  This was a factor in keeping the pool open, albeit on reduced hours, until the 28th. Nothing on the Better (GLL) website yet but hearing from Friends may make the difference between a 14th or 28th closing date.  They have a contact form at:

or telephone:

please make your views known.


Late Season Opening


Staff at the pool tell us that ‘holiday’ opening times run until Sunday 7th. From Monday 8th ‘term’ opening times apply for one week until Sunday 14th.  Thereafter, up to and including Sunday 28th a schedule of reduced opening times will apply.  Details are to be decided this week.  On Sunday 28th a junior triathlon swim will take place at the pool but staff tell us that one lane will be available for public use.  Just in case any of this changes, please check direct with the pool.
