The Wales National Pool in Swansea houses an international standard eight-lane 50m competition pool and a 25m warm-up pool.

Together with 1200 spectator seats, changing accommodation and strength and conditioning facilities, it is the home of the Welsh Swimming National Performance Centre - a hub for elite and performance swimming in Wales. 

The state-of-the-art facility boasts a fully-submersible boom so that the main pool can be divided into two 25m pools. And its moveable floor allows for various floor depths and angles.

The prestigious centre opened in 2003 and was made possible after Sport Wales awarded the project its largest-ever, single National Lottery grant of more than £8m. Swansea Council and Swansea University also injected funds into the project.

Built within the Swansea University’s International Sports Village, it is also open to the public.

 

High Performance services

Swimmers that have been selected as part of the Swim Wales Elite or Elite Development programmes or as part of the British Swimming Podium or Podium Potential programmes can access support services. University students may also be able to access services via the scholarship programme or Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme.
