The swimming
and social club

Enjoy the pool with our great value friendly club! Join today!

Our story is part of the pool’s history

The club was established in 1985 when a group of local people saved Hampton Pool from permanent closure and it became the focal point for volunteers who raised money and restored the pool for use by swimmers.

About the club today and our voluntary work

The club is designed to encourage families and other swimmers to become involved with the aims and objectives of Hampton Pool Trust. We also do voluntary work for the pool, including helping at the fantastic fundraising Summer Picnic Concerts and raising awareness of the pool within the community.

The emphasis on community spirit and voluntary work remains central to the club and all members are expected to contribute by organising and participating in fundraising activities and by offering more practical help with gardening and other maintenance. This commitment is an essential element of membership.

Six more reasons to join the Poolside Swim & BBQ Club:

  • We welcome individuals, couples or families of whatever age;
  • Our aim is to ensure the continued survival and viability of the pool by our volunteer work;
  • We host a friendly and relaxed ambience with the accent on enjoyment;
  • There are at least three lanes for swimming at all club sessions ...and plenty of room for families to enjoy themselves in both the main pool and the smaller learner pool;
  • You can enjoy the benefits of a quieter environment
    (sessions take place outside of public swimming times, although swimming lessons still take place on Saturday mornings)
  • The BBQ is lit during the evening sessions for members to cook their own food and socialise.

Some volunteering is expected from club members throughout the season.


All sessions are lifeguarded by Hampton Pool staff but members must volunteer as poolside helpers for a minimum of two sessions a season.

There is a self cook barbecue on Tuesday and Sunday and evenings and members are encouraged to bring their own food and join in the fun. But one very strict rule is that no glass is allowed on poolside. All drinks must be in non-glass containers and all “glasses” must be made of unbreakable material.

Four weekly club sessions:

The club meets from the beginning of April until the end of September.


Tuesday evening

19:00 to 20:30 + use of BBQ until 21:30(2)(3)
  Saturday morning 08:00 to 09:00

  Sunday evening 18:30 to 20:30 + use of BBQ until 21:30(2)(3)
