Heated Open Air Pool

Welcome to Petersfield Open Air Pool

2022 Season

We would advise all patrons to regularly check our Facebook page and the timetable page on this website for updates and if you are still unsure, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01730 265143 before making the journey to visit. Up to date information will also be posted on the bulletin board at the pool.


Boilers Off – September 17th : Cold Water Swimming

The heated season ends on 17th September, at which point we will be turning off the boilers and trying to retain the heat as long as possible so that we can offer cold swimming into the Autumn.  We plan to be open to at least the end of October and possibly into November.  The criteria for closure will be when the temperature dips below 14 C or when there is insufficient interest to be viable to stay open.  

Boilers off means no hot showers before or after swimming. We encourage those who use our cold shower to please continue and everyone else to shower just before they leave for the pool. The best way to warm up is by having a hot drink.  Hot drinks will be available at the pool café (sorry – there is a charge this year!). Of-course, feel free to bring your own hot drink. 

From September 19 – end September: There will be lane swimming on Tuesday and Thursday from 11-1 and on Saturday and Sunday from 10-2.  

October: Throughout October we will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10-2 (unless the criteria for closure above is met).

We endeavour to keep the pool operating to this schedule but please see Facebook for any unanticipated changes. 

Note that vouchers are valid for cold water swimming, but season passes are not.
