Frequently Asked Questions
Q – Do I need a Lifesaving qualification?
A – No, no prior Lifesaving experience is required
Q – What do I need to bring?
A – Swimwear, goggles, swim hat (not essential) and a towel! For some sessions, you made need clothes (pyjamas) you don't mind getting wet!
Q - Where is the Wales National Pool?
A - Starting from the entrance to Fulton House, the best route to take is straight to the mini round-about located close to Halls of Residence. Turn left here and follow the main road passing Singleton Hospital on your right. Cross Sketty Lane at the main junction and you have arrived at the pool. The number 8 bus stops just outside the pools so it’s easy to get to from Bay.
