All you need to know – Eynsham Hall
Eynsham Hall, North Leigh, Witney, Oxfordshire, OX29 6PN

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

Location: Eynsham Hall

Parking: There are some parking spaces in front of the leisure centre, and plenty of additional spaces in the main car park.

Essential Information:

  • Eynsham Hall is not in Eynsham itself, but at North Leigh, which is located on the A4095 between Witney and Woodstock.
  • Once you have entered the driveway, continue straight on towards the main house until you reach the stone gateway directly in front of the building. Turn left here, and you will see the leisure centre in a separate building in front of you.
  • 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 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

Changing rooms: There is one male and one female changing room (quite small).  You are welcome to get babies changed poolside if changing rooms are full. There are no nappy bins available at the premises so please take your used nappies with you.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks do not have exclusivity at this venue.

Access: Spectators can sit poolside.

Poolside assistant: There isn't a Puddle Ducks poolside assistant

Technical Information:

  • Pool temperature: Minimum 31oC (For babies and children under 2 years old a Baby or Mini Wetsuit or Thermal Top will be available or can be purchased from our online shop, if needed).
  • Depth: 1.4m (pool platform in use during lessons).  There is no shallow end so parents of a short stature may wish to try one of our other pools.
  • Maximum class ratios: 9 children/adult pairs:1 teacher

Helping you to make your special time last even longer...that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference

You’re likely to be swimming with friends and make new ones along the way, so why not live life swimmingly away from the pool by meeting up before or after class.  Here are some local places we think you and your children may like:
