Swimming Pools at Cookstown Leisure Centre

We have 2 fantastic swimming pools with sessions to suit every type of swimmer.


The 25 metre main pool kept at 28 degrees is perfect for the keen swimmer with swim fit lanes available at different times during the week.  If you wish to have a swim fit lane all to your self this can been booked, when the pool is open for public swimming, at Reception and is subject to availability.


Our learner pool is free-formed shaped and gradually slopes from shallow steps to 1 meter deep making it ideal for parents with toddlers and beginners swimming lessons.  There are two water features in the pool.


The Twister Flume is 52 metres long with twists and turns that will put your head in a spin and plunges you into a 1.2 metre deep splash pool. 


Swimming is a great way to improve fitness and core strength.  If you can't swim, swimming lessons for children and adults are available.
