Unit 1, Portland Retail Park, Mansfield NG18 1HA

We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at DW Fitness  Mansfield – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: DW Fitness, Mansfield

Parking:  There is free parking for up to 2 hours in the car park in front of the club.

Essential Information:

  • Please sign in at Reception
  • A well-fitting (tight) neoprene swim nappy or costume – MUST be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly Nappy Wraps & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in  all other programmes if your child is not fully dry. 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
  • Please do not enter the pool unless told to do so by your teacher. We only have access to the sectioned area of the pool, the rest of the pool and jacuzzi area is for member’s only            


Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use of a roped off area during hire. Members have use of the rest of the pool

Changing Rooms: There are two large changing rooms with showers for males and females, along with a small family changing room. All have direct access to the pool.

Access: DW Fitness has a no spectator policy in all of its venues but they have agreed we can have a maximum of  2 ”Poolside Helpers” PER CLASS on poolside to watch the class. If you wish to take up this offer, you MUST book in advance via the office and the spectator MUST wear the ID badge provided by the Teacher (and return at the end of your lesson). The booking can be made a maximum of 7 days prior to the lesson but must be no later than 3:30pm on the day before your child’s lesson or by 3:30pm on Friday if requiring a space at the weekend. The club will have a record of the expected spectators and if they are NOT pre-booked, they will not be allowed poolside (they can still go into the café).

Alternatively, DW Fitness, may relay the CCTV feed from the pool hall of the Puddle Ducks lessons to the TV display in the Café area. This allows viewing for a broader family gathering, it is more comfortable for elderly guests and for those parents attending with other children not in the water and who they cannot take poolside.
