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

Location: Freedom Fitness

 

Parking:

  • Free onsite parking – the entrance to the car park is at the junction of Buckland Hill and St Peter Street; please be aware that your car registration details must be supplied to Freedom Fitness or you will receive a fine.

Essential Information:

  • Report to reception when you arrive at Freedom Fitness where you will be asked to provide your car registration details for free use of the car park.
  • Pushchairs can be stored in a designated area at Freedom Fitness; they cannot be taken into the changing rooms.
  • We are asking all adults to wear a face covering in the pool building and changing areas, but not in the pool itself.
  • We recommend that you bring a small changing mat that can be rolled up and placed in your bag so that you always have a dry place to change your baby.
  • A padlock is required to secure the lockers at this venue; please bring one with you.
  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly Eco Swm NappyWrap & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not fully toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value swimming kits which contain everything you need for your swim lesson.
  • We recommend that babies under 12 months old wear a BabyWrap or other baby wetsuit; these can be purchased from our shop.
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks has the use of a designated area of the pool during our lessons; the rest of the pool and building is used by Freedom Fitness members.

Changing rooms:

  • There are separate changing rooms for women and men.
  • To reduce the amount of time spent in the changing room, where possible, we recommend that you and your child arrive swim-ready at the venue, i.e. with your swimming costume/trunks/swim nappy on underneath easy to remove clothes.
  • A padlock is required to secure the lockers at this venue; please bring one with you.
  • We ask all customers to vacate the changing areas and pool building within 10 minutes of your lesson finishing. Your assistance with this is very much appreciated.

  • Unfortunately, spectators are not allowed poolside at this venue; there is an onsite café that friends and family are welcome to use while they wait (there is no view of the pool from the cafe). Please note we cannot allow photographs to be taken at this venue.

Poolside assistant: A Poolside Assistant is present at the venue at key times in the term.
