Following the temporary closures we have adopted a phased approach to re-opening services and are planning to reopen the swimming pools in the near future. Follow us on social media to keep up to date.
As part of your membership with Activ8 you have unlimited access to public swimming sessions at Billingham Forum, Stockton Splash and Thornaby Pool at no extra cost, meaning you can go for a swim whenever you feel like it (as long as we’re open!).
Swimming as a fantastic way to help maintain a healthy weight, look after your heart and lungs, relieve tension and get a whole body workout at the same time – not many exercises can make such bold claims.
We offer a wide range of water-based activities in our swimming pools at Billingham Forum, Splash and Thornaby Pool. Whether you want to take part in an invigorating Aqua Aerobics class or simply swim lengths we have a comprehensive timetable for you. Each venue has a varied swimming pool timetable which caters for all ages and abilities.
For swimming timetables please choose your preferred venue below.
Billingham Forum’s fresh and modern pool facilities are ideal for all sorts of water based activities.
After a multi-million re-development in 2011 Billingham Forum now includes a 25 metre pool which can be used to host swimming events, with a depth ranging from 0.9 metres – 2.18 metres, and an activity pool which has a state-of-the-art moveable floor in which the depth of the pool can be adjusted from 0 – 3 metres to suit a variety of water based activities from diving to Aquafit. We also have a shallow teaching pool ideal for babies, young children and those who are learning to swim.
The poolside changing facilities boast a spacious changing village which is ideal for families and those with a disability.
Splash’s bright and modern pool facilities are ideal for all sorts of swimming, fitness and family fun activities.
The main 25m pool is tranquil and perfect for those wanting to swim lengths, but it really comes to life in our Big Splash Swimtime sessions when waves, flumes and water jets are in operation!
The small pool offers shallower water (10-80cm) and is ideal for young ones wanting to practice their swimming skills.
We also have a toddler area which includes a mini slide and an area with very shallow water where babies can sit and splash about. The toddler area flows into the main pool and is perfect for little ones who are making their first splashes and gaining confidence in water!
We also have a Bubble pool on poolside where you can sit and relax after your swim!
Thornaby Pool is an ideal venue for those who are passionate about swimming.
A real hit with serious swimmers Thornaby Pool has a term-time timetable that caters mostly for those who like to swim with no gimmicks! However, during school holidays, evenings and weekends the pool comes to life with special fun events and inflatable sessions, children will have hours of enjoyment, as well as being able to keep active! The pool is also popular with swimming clubs who like to train at a high level. Diving is available in the deep end of the pool.
