The pool is treated by a mix of calcium hypochlorite and sulphuric acid. It also has a UV system to aid pool filtration and a state-of-the-art plant room. And whilst the day-to-day basis the pool is managed by Parkwood while there is a service maintenance agreement in place with FT Leisure.


Although the pool hasn’t been open for a full year, it is already estimated that around 15,000 people use it every month – which represents a 15 per cent increase compared to the pool that it replaced.


LOCAL APPEAL Area manager Justin Palfrey comments: “The pool is open to all, and


typically attracts users from within a 20 minute drive – this extends beyond West Bridgford and includes large parts of Nottingham, particularly the area to the south of the River Trent. “This pool is unique to the local community because it’s state- of-the-art and really meets local needs.

The site has opened with a range of water-based activities on offer including general swims, lane swims, inflatable sessions and aqua fit.


Olympic champion Adam Peaty also recently paid a visit on behalf of Swim England, which used the Arena pool as part of the relaunch of its Learn to Swim awards. He handed out certificates and proved extremely popular with the children.

Says Justin: “We’ll continue to work in partnership with Rushcliffe Borough Council to attract new users from the local community and we’ll be holding a number of open days. “We’re also keen to further develop our Aquazone swimming programme – this has already grown by 20 per cent since the pool opened and we’re introducing an online portal called Course Pro to provide ongoing online feedback to parents.” Rushcliffe Arena Tel. 0115 9814 027 www.leisurecentre.com/rushcliffe-arena
