Important Customer Notice – YMCA Garstang Pool

Swim Web Homepage Banner

We are delighted to announce that the Wyre Council Cabinet have approved further investment into the swimming pool in Garstang. The pool’s plant room will undergo a major upgrade, allowing for even better access to quality swimming for the whole community

In order to facilitate the upgrades in a safe and efficient manner, the centre will unfortunately have to close from Monday 24th July 2017 and will not re-open until the upgrades have been completed, w/c Monday 4th September 2017.

Please note, these dates are just a guideline and as we plan to adhere to these as much as possible, there could be some slight changes. We will of course keep you fully updated via the website, via announcements on centre notice boards at YMCA Garstang Leisure and Swimming Centre and via our social media channels.

Your YMCA Membership

One of the great things about your YMCA membership is that it includes access to all YMCA Health and Fitness Centres on the Fylde Coast. During this period, even if you possess a Garstang Only membership, you will have the ability to continue to use your membership to workout and enjoy the pools at your closest YMCA.

Your Swimming Lesson/Rookie Lifeguard Direct Debit

As a result of the closure period, there will be some slight changes to your child’s swimming lesson/rookie lifeguard direct debit plan. These are outlined as follows:

  • We will be collecting your direct debit payment of £22 as normal, on or as close to 1st July 2017
  • There will be no collection of your direct debit on or as close to 1st August 2017
  • Lessons will recommence in September following the re-opening. We will be collecting your direct debit at a reduced amount of £15, on or as close to 1st September 2017
  • We will then revert back to collecting your normal direct debit payment  of £22 on or as close to 1st October 2017

Even though this is an exciting time for the swimming pool and the whole community, we know the short term situation isn’t ideal and we do appreciate your continued support and co-operation during this time. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please email any questions you may have to Dave Sweetman, General Manager at or Kirsten Swift, Operations Manager at
