We’re proud to offer female-only swimming sessions to give women a safe and discreet place to be able to swim if they feel uncomfortable about regular mixed gender swimming sessions

Pendle Wavelengths in Nelson and Pendle Leisure Centre in Colne offer female-only swimming with female lifeguards. Take a look at our swimming pool timetables for the session that best suits you:

The two centres also offer female-only Aquarhythmics sessions. These very effective classes in the pool use water as resistance - eliminating strain and impact while giving you the necessary benefits of improving stamina, strength and suppleness

You will be taking part with people with similar abilities as yourself, with no male staff or members of the public present
