Run Down, Few Time Slots
Jan 2019 • Solo
I remember coming to this place as a kid in primary school and the whole facility seems frozen in time. The tiling and much else of the changing rooms hasn’t changed for over 20 years and I wouldn’t be surprised if some rather interesting new plagues give their place of birth as Thornaby Pool - Men’s Locker Room Floor.

Further to this rather classical decor is the fact that there are few slots in which to actually swim. Much of the time is taken up by school kids or other clubs and when lanes are set up for free swimming, they often contain rolling traffic jams in the form of breaststroke swimming, middle age women that I have seen complain to staff and tut a number of times because they get a bit splashed... in a swimming pool.

Whilst that sinks in, you’ll be pleased to know that there are pool noodles available for those time periods in which you find yourself slowly paddling behind these obstructions but they do little to add to the dour atmosphere of the place.

It’s not really for kids, in the same way that old Victorian class rooms are about as child friendly. I also cannot shake the spectre of a certain old swimming teacher, Mrs Bowes who was rather unpleasant and was previously one of the pool’s denizens in a previous life.

Not great.

Inflatable Play Session
Jul 2017 • Family
We went here recently to the Friday Inflatable session.
Never been before
It was great value at £7 for my daughter and I for the hour.
We had a great time. I laughed so hard my ribs hurt and my 7 year old had so much fun.
Think Total Wipe out but smaller and you are there.
The Life guards were amazing. Friendly and chatty. Splashing the kids in the Inflatable to make it slippy.
Parking is free and on both sides of the building
Now the cons. The facilities are dated. The pool looks dirty around the overflow.
Their is no cafe only vending machines.
The changing rooms are open area changing not cubicle and there were lots of boys in with there mums which made me uncomfortable.
Would I go again? Yes for the inflatable session but no for a standard swim there are better places locally

This pool is great! The staff teach really well and are good with kids. Not many people can fit in or sit around the side though.

Great for a party

The boys have attended a few parties here and they thoroughly enjoy the 'total wipeout' style course. It is well manned with lifeguards

Birthday pool party
Jul 2015 • Family
Excellent place for kids party. Children and parents loved it. The float was really good fun. I was really impressed with life guards. We were allowed 50 in the pool. There were 5 life guards who ensured the children were being safe on the float. Very good value for money and something different to the usual soft play!

Small pool
Average experience. Changing rooms cramped and floor unclean. Pool is older but clean. All in all good for a small local leisure centre.
