All you need to know – Downwind
Duke’s Covert, Bagshot, Surrey GU19 5HU
We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Downwind, Bagshot – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!
Parking: For classes starting on the hour (e.g. 11am) please enter and drive down in front of the house and along the drive. For those with classes starting on the half hour (e.g. 10.30am), please drive straight down the drive and keep to the left. There is parking for 4 cars in a small carpark, the rest can park along the drive behind.
- Please arrive a maximum of 15 minutes early to get changed, lessons will start promptly
- 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!
- It’s a good idea to bring a changing mat or towel to lay on the floor poolside to help get your baby into the pool and to change your baby on after the session.
- You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page
Changing rooms: There is one large communal female changing room and 3 smaller changing rooms which can be used for males or females.
Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use of the pool during lesson times.
Access: The entrance to the pool is to the right of the main house; there are 5 steps inside the door down to the pool level. Please leave car seats outside as space is limited in the changing area.
Parking: Classes on the hour should park on the drive way in front of the house, classes on the 1/2 hour should park at the top to the left hand side of the house.
