Swimming lessons are available for children and adults, following the ASA Learn to Swim programme. Ferndown has an extensive selection of water activities ranging from Aqua Jogging to Hydrofit, to Aqua Circuits and also hosts a Swim4Health training programme for people who want to boost their health and wellbeing with the freedom and mobility of being in the water. Check out SwimTAG, a dedicated wristband you wear in the pool to charts your activity in calories burned, distance, time, strokes and more.
The facilities at Ferndown aren’t limited to swimming although that is the most popular activity there. This popular sports centre, run by People For Places Leisure, also has a gym, fitness and group cycling studios, sports halls and pitches.
