Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I need to bring any training kit to the sessions?
We sometimes use kickboards, pull-buoys, hand paddles and fins during our training sessions. You will need to bring your own if you want to use them.
- How are the lanes set out in the pool?
We have 6 lanes in each pool, including a development lane and competition training lane. So whether you’re just getting back into swimming, swimming to keep fit or training for your next competition, we have a lane for you!
- Are all the changing facilities and showers operating at Truro Pool?
There are Covid restrictions. Please try to turn up for training ‘pool ready’. Entry is through the door to the right of reception straight onto poolside. After your swim you can use the individual shower cubicles for a quick rinse.
- What about parking at Truro Pool?
There is free parking at the Leisure Centre, but remember to register your car, or you will receive an expensive ticket. There is a screen in reception and we have a tablet at the entry to training where you can enter your car details. Also remember to ‘Confirm’ your details to complete the process.
