Booking is strongly advised for all swims at the Pells. 

This is where you can book tickets for all sessions.

Tickets for the week starting 10 days ahead go on sale on Thursday each week (eg on Thursday 15 July, tickets go on sale for week beginning Monday 26 July)

The booking pages have all the information on session times and prices. For this year we also have automated waiting lists in place, so where sessions are fully booked you can join a waiting list, in case tickets are returned.

Please note - the total number of spaces left for a session is shown at the top of each session slot.

You will need your credit or debit card when booking on this site: payments will be taken via the Stripe system rather than Paypal. Some customers had problems using Paypal last year.

If there are any problems we shall seek to resolve them as rapidly as possible

The adult concession discount can be booked online. Be prepared to show proof of your receipt of Universal Credit if requested by pool staff when you enter the pool.



Class Pass system

We can't yet offer full season tickets, but we hope to do so for 2022. However, we have introduced two new discount schemes for the remainder of this summer season. These went on sale from Monday 21 June, and will be available for the summer season (up to 12 September). They are sold via the Bookwhen system which we use for all our online booking.

We are making a discount scheme available with a "class pass" on the bookwhen system, which allows adults to have 15 sessions in our summer season for the price of £30. This is a pass per person (so you can't book in more than one person per session using the same class pass). You can however book any session and more than one session a day. We hope this helps those who are regular Pells swimmers and supporters.

For those on universal credit, we are also providing a new children's class pass, so that you can pay £10 and get 10 children admissions. Since people may have more than one child in their family, you can use this for more than one child per session. Proof of current UC receipt will be needed when you first attend.

The class passes don't give you any priority on booking or an entitlement to a particular session - if sessions are full they are full. For both class passes, the same rules on ticket transfer and refunds also apply as to individual bookings. If you use up all class pass sessions over the coming weeks, you can buy another one.

The scheme will operate from Monday 21 June for the summer season (up to 12 September),and we will review if we have a similar new scheme for the autumn.

We trialled the class pass in the Bookwhen system in our autumn season last year, and it worked well, so we hope the same applies for its use in our summer season 2021.
