The Swim Torquay Pool at Plainmoor is a 4 lane 25metre pool, the only pool in Torquay, open to the general public, which provides for swimming as a sport.
The pool was built 30 years ago funded by: The Sports Council, Manpower Services, Torbay Council, Swim Torquay Support Group fundraising efforts.
The pool is used as a facility to many local schools. This enables a great majority of children to participate in swimming lessons. A very valuable skill, especially here in Torbay, with so much water surrounding us.
Some of the skills which can be gained at Swim Torquay range from essential basic swimming
skills through to advanced swimming. Water polo to lifeguard training.
The pool is used by Torquay Leander and Oddicombe Swimming Clubs, whose members have had numerous successes over the years at County, District and National level in swimming and water polo.
