Health Club​

The Marlborough College Health Club allows access to the superb, eight-lane, 25-metre, deck-level competition swimming pool which is among the best in the south-west of England. The pool has excellent water quality which is primarily disinfected by ultraviolet light, thereby eliminating the need for high chlorine levels.

Friendly, highly qualified and experienced staff are on hand to keep you safe and support your swimming goals. They can provide one-to-one coaching or masterclass sessions for those who wish to improve their technique. Additionally, programmes of swimming sessions are available at poolside.

Health Club membership includes use of the Swimtag system which allows swimmers to monitor and record their swims using a simple wristband. Data can be accessed online to help manage your fitness programme. Swimtag also enables members to take part in individual and team challenges which are held throughout the year. Members are allowed to use training aids – fins, paddles, pull buoys, etc. – and there is a selection available at the club.

Benefits include:

  • limited membership numbers;
  • swimming for £32 per month (plus £15 joining fee);
  • flexible payment options (annually or by monthly Direct Debit); and
  • 10% discount on all swimming-related products at Crosby & Lawrence.
