Fancy a dip? If you're an NTU Sport member you can use University of Nottingham's swimming pool for just £3 per visit.

Good News, the David Ross Sports Village pool has now re-opened!

Earlier this year University of Nottingham Sport embarked upon an extensive £1.4 million refurbishment of the swimming pool complex at David Ross Sports Village, and we’re delighted to announce that the pool area reopened on Monday 8 August as phase one of the upgrades are now complete!

In order to offer swimming provision as soon as possible, some temporary changes will remain in place around our changing and shower facilities and access routes as we complete the final areas of the pool refurbishment.

To reduce demand on these areas, we politely request that swimmers arrive ‘swim-ready’ and shower at home where possible. We also ask swimmers to bring appropriate footwear such as flip-flops when using our temporary changing provision.

Lockers will be temporarily unavailable – we ask all swimmers to please leave belongings poolside during your swim.

Nottingham Trent University sport/non sport members can now activate and book all pool sessions online.
