Swim Dynamics Coaching Venues


Above is one of my favourite swimming spots on the Isle of Mull! Locally I like to coach and swim in the venues below:

Box End Park

  • There is a first aid trained safety observer present during all swimming sessions.

  • The lakes are spring fed so the water is incredibly clean and safe for swimmers.

  • All the staff are super friendly and couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful.

  • The site has a huge, free secure car park, lockers, changing facilities that include hot showers; and two eating places: one I like to call the posh restaurant and the other, ‘the bacon butty shed’ (I prefer the informal one as that’s where everyone gathers on the grass and there’s a good vibe).

  • The music from the wakeboarding crew gives the site a fun, relaxed feel.

  • They have a full range of rental wetsuits available for hire priced at £5 (these can be hired from reception on arrival).

Inspire Luton Sports Village

  • 50m pool.

  • Clean facilities that include shower and change facilities.

  • Very friendly staff.

  • Huge car park that is free for the first 3 hours.

  • Site also has a café, gym, extensive fitness timetable and racquet sport courts.

Woburn Lido

  • 23 x 9m pool with a 1m deep shallow end and a 1.65m deep end.

  • Cold water swimming available October – May (10– 13 degrees).

  • Pool heated for summer season to 26+ degrees.

  • Super-friendly staff

  • Café (with fancy coffees!)

  • If you're lucky you might see elephants over the fence drinking at the reservoir!

Jesus Green Lido

  • One of the few remaining examples of the lidos that were built across the country in the 1920s and 30s.

  • It’s the largest pool in Cambridge and one of the longest outdoor pools in the country.

  • The pool is about 90 metres long, and it ranges from 1.2 to 2.5 metres in depth.

  • There are separate male and female changing and shower facilities.

  • The pool has disabled toilet facilities and there is a hoist to enter the pool.

  • There are grassed and paved areas for sunbathing. The pool is surrounded by mature trees that act as a windbreak.

St Albans School

  • 25 x 13m pool with a 1m shallow end and a 2m deep end.

  • Abbey Gateway, St Albans, Hertfordshire AL3 4HB

  • Modern, clean & quiet - feels like a real treat when you come here especially when the sun shines through the windows.
