Sports Facilities


RGU SPORT is home to a 25 metre swimming pool with 6 lanes, hosting a variety of different events throughout the year.

Each day, there is lane swimming and open swim sessions available, as well as family swim at the weekends.

Please refer to the current swimming pool timetable prior to arriving at RGU SPORT to ensure the session is appropriate for your needs.

We can set up a hoist for any of our swimming pool sessions. If you require a hoist please notify reception on arrival at RGU SPORT, so this can be set up in time for you arriving on poolside.


Timetables can change from time to time, we'll have information at reception and updates on social media to keep you informed.
