1 Pulheim Parade; Fareham; Hampshire; PO16 0BU

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

Parking: Pay and display car park (Market Quay) directly opposite. Tesco car park is free for up to 3 hours with a £5 minimum spend, and is very close by.

Essential Information:

  • Please sign in at reception on arrival
  • Male and female changing rooms available – a padlock is required for the lockers. These are available to buy at reception.
  • All nappies must be taken home from the club, and not left in the bins
  • Please ensure you dry off on the blue mats adjacent to the shower, to avoid excess water on the changing room floors. The changing room is slippery when wet, so this is essential for the safety of our customers and the gym members.

Changing rooms: Male and Female changing rooms available, with lockers which need to be secured with a padlock

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have a roped off area of the pool, which will be open to club members during our hire period

Access: No spectators allowed poolside, and no photography allowed.

Technical information

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