Lap Swimming Ettiquette

Swimming laps is a great way to keep fit and enjoy the tranquil relaxation swimming brings. There are a few key points to take into consideration when swimming laps at a Lane 4 managed facility to ensure your experience is safe and enjoyable:

1. Always swim on the left hand side of the Lane i.e. Swim down on the left and once you turn around at the other end swim back with the lane rope close to your left side.

2. If speed allocated lanes are provided at your local Lane 4 managed facility, step back and take a look to see which lane you would be best suited to. 

3. As a matter of courtesy, inform any other lap swimmer you will be joining the lane. This ensures everyone is kept aware of the swimmers around them

4. Keep your equipment tidy! there is nothing worse than trying to join a lane for swimming laps and someone has their equipment all over the place

5. Lastly, please remember, lap swimming lanes are provided for the entire general public and cannot be occupied by one single swimmer. Be courteous to your fellow swimmers and welcome them into the lane, even if you were there first.
