The Alan Higgs Centre

Service Updates

The new Olympic-sized 50 metre pool will be located at the back of the building where the indoor 3G pitch once was. To go with the new pool, we also have new and updated changing room facilities to get yourself ready for your swim.

Not only is the pool Olympic-sized, the floor also moves, just like the pool at Xcel Leisure Centre! This means it can be comfortably used by all swimming abilities – the floor can be raised to deck level for those who would like to paddle and can also be dropped all the way to 2 metres. 

The 50m pool will be ideal for all events, big or small, due to the high-tech scoring board and the 500-person viewing gallery.

Although the pool is large, you shouldn’t be intimidated by it. Occasionally it will be divided into smaller sections for particular swim sessions. The pool is available to all Lifestyles members along with the public too.
