Who we are

We are a local charity building a ground breaking, disability deep water facility that can be used by all in our community and beyond. We will be aiming to offer over fifty aquatic activities at our unique centre.

Registered Charity Number 1175869

Our vision

To create a fully inclusive deep water facility. Enabling people of all abilities to take part in over fifty aquatic activities right here in the Barnet Borough.

Why we need this

The only deep water pool in North West London gets demolished in 2019 and there will be no facility of this kind for future generations. We aim to rebuild this much needed community asset in Mill Hill but we need your support to achieve this.

Building this pool will mean having a state of the art facility right here in Barnet

What our new centre will bring

State of the art facility using latest technology

  • Moveable floor to enable over fifty aquatic activities
  • Six diving boards
  • Underwater fitness classes
  • Full wheelchair access into the pool
  • Lift to the diving platforms – nothing like this is available in the UK

More programmes and extended timetables for

  • Schools
  • Squads
  • Athletes
  • Lessons
  • Disability watersport
