Free Family Swimming

In school holidays throughout 2022

Pool Supervision Ratios

Come and enjoy free swimming for the family

Monday 27th June – Tuesday 16th August 2022

We have hundreds of FREE sessions across the city during the school summer holidays.

The free family swim sessions are targeted at families that need support with the cost of the summer holidays. They're scheduled on weekdays, evenings and weekends to cater for every family's busy schedule.

These sessions are extremely popular and to help avoid disappointment you should book in advance. (Up-to 7-days in advance)

If you're already registered with Glasgow Club you can use our booking website or Glasgow Club App. To see session times, register and book, we recommend you download the Glasgow Club App, add your chosen venue and tap swimming, then Free Family Swim.

If no one in your family group has a free Glasgow Club card yet, you can register now and pick up a card when you first visit. It costs nothing, speeds up access to the pool, and if you opt-in to receiving messages from us you'll find out about more free swimming and other activities on offer for you and the kids. Register for free here.

We can now accommodate group bookings for this activity and only one member of your party needs to register and book, they can then add other swimmers to the session.

(Walk-in bookings are subject to availability on the day, however we recommend you book in advance to guarantee your free family swim session.)

Sessions will be taking place at Bellahouston, Castlemilk, Drumchapel, Easterhouse, Gorbals, Maryhill, North Woodside, Pollok, Scotstoun, Springburn, Tollcross and Whitehill.
