We swim at three Medway pools, depending on squad and day:
Strood Leisure Centre,
Strood Leisure Centre is an eight lane 25 metre pool, with spectator seating alongside the pool (and a small well hidden cafe behind the changing area). If the car park next to the centre is full, there is another at the bottom of the hill two minutes away. Parking is free in both areas.
Medway Park (formerly Black Lion)
Our 'home' pool is a 6 lane 25 metre pool, with an addition 'boom' pool on one end and a diving pit. The changing areas are public and shared and so we recommend using the lockers which take a (refundable) £1 coin. Seating is on a raised separate gallery - best view of the nearest lanes is from the walkway at the end of the pool. At Medway Park during daytimes you do have to buy a pay and display ticket and then get an immediate refund inside at reception.
Rochester Maths School
The 'Math' pool is also 25 metres and six lanes, and is of an 'older' design. Care is needed on the steps down to the changing areas, and on the tiled spectator seating area. Seating is limite,d but its the pool where you can get cloest to the action (and wettest!). Please park considerately in the marked areas only (for free), and do not block walkways. Looks out for late school leavers when parking!
