Keeping our Customer Safe

Although we are slowly easing out of restrictions we ask all customers to uphold social distancing measures within our facilities.  Masks are to be worn within the Sports Centre (although not in the pool).   If you have tested positive for COVID within the last 10 days, or if you are self-isolating, please cancel any bookings you have and do not arrive for the activities.  Thank you!

NEW: Open Public Swim Sessions

Maximum numbers still apply in order to comply with social distancing. At Dunbar Leisure Pool, the waves & flume will be in operation during Open Swim Sessions.

“Get into Summer” is a Scottish Government-funded initiative to help children, young people and families have fun throughout the holiday period.   The activities have all been planned to help children and young people who have been particularly affected by the pandemic to make the most of their summer and connect with others.

East Lothian’s charitable health, wellbeing and leisure trust, enjoyleisure is thrilled to be awarded funds from this scheme to deliver “FREE CHILD SWIMS” to children of all ages across the county.

Available at each of the county’s swimming pools in Dunbar, North Berwick, Haddington, Tranent, Prestonpans and Musselburgh, children from 0-17 years can swim for free Monday to Friday between 9am-3pm inclusive.  Out with these dedicated free swim hours, standard admission prices apply. 

Due to social distancing measures, each of the swimming pools continue to be running timed bookable pre-set timed swim sessions.  However each of the pool programmes are being adjusted to allow more kids fun sessions and family tanks throughout the day.


We’re proud to be part of East Lothian Get into Summer 2021.
