Frequently asked questions

What is included in a family swim session?

You'll get your own area of the pool for your household. We include small inflatables, toys, and floats. There will also be a lifeguard on duty at all times.

Want to hire the whole pool for your household? That's fine, too! Check out our swimming parties page for more information, or get in touch at [email protected]

How deep is the pool?

The pools at PaddlePod Newcastle and PaddlePod North Tyneside are both 1.3m deep throughout.

Is the pool suitable for swimmers of all ages?

It sure is! Our pools are used to deliver lessons to children from birth, all the way up to adults - and we offer a warm and welcoming environment for all.

Please note that any children under eight years old will need to be supervised by an adult, and we allow a maximum of two children to one adult during these sessions.

How do I book?

It's super easy! Just head over to Doddle, which is our online booking system, pick a date, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

How can I amend or cancel an existing booking?

Our family swim sessions are non-refundable.

If, however, you need to make a change to an existing booking, just get in touch with us at [email protected] You'll need to give us at least 72 hours notice, and we will try our best to rearrange your booking for you (please do note, though, that this might not always be possible). Any changes will incur a £5 admin charge.
