We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at the Beechwood Community Centre – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!
Location: Beechwood Community Centre Pool. This is a community-owned pool.
Parking: Please park in front of the building and enter via the main entrance, round the corner on the right hand side. The door to the changing rooms is marked ‘Swimming Area’ on the right hand side of the entrance hall.
Please read the COVID-19 pool information document for Beechwood Community Pool as some of the information below is superseded by what is in this document.
- Please inform the Puddle Ducks office if regular male changing is required
- Please use the lockers which are located poolside
- A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly NappyWraps & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not yet fully potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Starter Packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?
- All Swim Academy Children must wear swim hats in the pool. You can find these plus our range of goggles and other Swim Accessories here
- You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page
Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use during hire times.
