Palatine Leisure Centre - swimming
We have a competition sized 8 lane moveable floor pool and a learner pool. We can host all manner of aquatic events, as well as providing a varied swimming programme for our users from casual swimming to lane swimming, aqua aerobics to inflatable fun sessions.
A smart tool to help swimmers reach their potential has made a splash at Palatine Leisure Centre.
The Swimtag is a special electronic gadget that users can pick up from the leisure centre to help monitor their technique and improve swimming ability.
The technology is worn on the swimmer’s wrist and measures each stroke that is taken, calculating how many calories have been burnt as well as the distance travelled by the swimmer.
On top of the statistics, it can also set targets, such as swimming the distance between Blackpool’s North and South Pier or even crossing the English Channel allowing people to use it to train ahead of a special challenge.
The tag will also keep people’s previous swims and compare them as soon as they enter the pool, so that they can track improvement. SwimTags are available from reception & are FREE to use for Sport Blackpool members.
The programme for the pool offers opportunities for all with a varied programme of activities.
We have recently launched our new, Liquid Assets Programme. Please click here for more information.

Both the learner pool and main pool is available to hire for both regular bookings and one-off events. Please complete an enquiry form to find out availability and prices.
We also run a Learn to Swim Scheme across both Palatine Leisure Centre and Moor Park Health & Leisure Centre.
