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

Emma Raducanu, 18, was lectured by some middle-aged men on how to handle pressure when she withdrew from Wimbledon. She regrouped and two months later she's a Grand Slam champion. Let it be a turning point: support our young people and back them to find their own path to success.

Didn’t quite predict the lovely weekend of sport. Back to hockey matches @MillHillSenior - back to diving @DivingAquatics and @EmmaRaducanu smashing the #USOpen - it’s all perked us up a treat ☺️

Ok so it rained a bit, then a lot, but then we managed some dry time and had some good old fashioned parent and diver rounders 🏏 Well done to all the divers that braved the Aqua Park 🥶

Thank you to everyone who shared their gazebos & to @MrAndyIreland for the amazing pizza 🍕

All the aquatics should be available in equal measures. Water sports are practically good for almost all. It’s too bonkers to think about. But yes with the Olympics you would@think that the NGB’s would be fighting for these pools.

Sign the petition before one of the most iconic and critical sports venues in the UK gets mothballed…
