Adult Swimming

Swimming is one of the most popular activities for adults to enjoy. Not only is it accessible and affordable, it is also one of the greatest ways to maintain a healthy weight, look after your heart and lungs, relieve tension and get a whole body workout at the same time – perfect for your overall health and fitness. Some of us have a lifelong passion for swimming from an early age, whilst others can often discover our thirst later in life due to the breadth of health benefits associated with regular swimming. Whatever the reason, Stockton-on-Tees is home to 4 swimming pools offering a variety of adult focused sessions and a popular adult swimming lessons to keep you happy, active and feeling revitalised.

Following your swim you can also make use of the sauna and steam facilities located within Billingham Forum and IB Leisure (Activ8 members only).
