Fair enough for local aurhority
Aug 2018 • Family
I often take my grandchildren and can’t really complain. Two nice pools, warm temperature and bright environment. People are encouraged to leave shoes in changing area at entrance. A very good idea as one of my main complaints in local authority pools is hygiene or lack of it. The cost for me is very reasonable £1.50 or approx as I’m a concession and so if there are no posh showers or things a bit chipped and scruffy I’m not bothered. I’d feel exactly the same after my swim even if I’d spent out ridiculous money at a private health club - nicely refreshed! The pool is served by lots of buses but if you take a car, get the refund for parking.

My only complaint is that a lot of the main pool is taken up with roping off for lanes and lessons. This leaves about a third left for leisure. However I usually do lanes when on my own. This pool is very reasonable and right in heart of Teddington.

Warmer Waters
Oct 2017 • Solo
This morning, the water in the main swimming pool seemed warmer than usual and made for a very pleasant and comfortable swim. I have asthma and the water is often quite cool/cold. This, coupled with the usual chlorine can cause me breathing difficulties. But today swimming felt less of an effort and altogether nicer. Thanks to whoever was responsible and let's hope it stays at that temperature!

Indoor pool.
Sep 2017 • Couples
Teddington swimming pool is located at vicarage road in Teddington and is an indoor pool and fitness centre. It was first opened as an outdoor unheated pool in 1931 and was then rebuilt in 1978 as a new indoor pool and fitness centre.

A very good swimming pool
Aug 2016 • Family
My wife and I took two young children to Teddington Pool during a recent visit. Both children had been many times previously and learnt to swim there. The pool is clean and very well maintained. Staff were helpful and friendly. There is an excellent area for "spectators" to sit and watch the aquatic activities, or read a book. Well worth a visit.

My kids learned to swim here
Aug 2016 • Family
Many moons ago, my kids learned to swim here! We always found it a brilliant place, so clean and well-maintained! It was great to visit it again and watch my grandson do a few lengths!

Well maintained and clean pool
Jul 2016 • Family
In contrast to many other pools in the area, this is a very well maintained and clean pool. It seems that management not only has a great hygiene etiquette, it also enforces these (you can't walk in with shoes), which is to the benefit of all users. The staff is very friendly. Excellent!!!

Poor pool management
Jun 2016 • Solo
I like this place and have been a member on and off for 8 years, but I do really have a problem with the swimming pool and only really use it on a Sunday morning as soon as it opens but a couple of weeks ago was the worst experience I had.

There is always poor management of lane discipline with mixed abilities allowed in the slow lane. In a crowded slow lane people do the backstroke and can bump into other swimmers easily - even right in front of life guards who I have never seen do anything to stop bumps or to facilitate the free movement of swimmers in any lane. In addition to this there were works being done in the changing area which meant that we all had to get to the pool via the school changing area. The signage for this was poor and I saw no general signs up warring about this. If I had known I wouldn't have actually come to the pool. The showers that I could access were in the school changing area so all child height which meant I couldn't shower after swimming. If there were alternative arrangements for this I saw no signs.

I like the rest of the gym, especially the spinning classes, but going swimming seems to stress me out more than relaxing due to the inability to manage the users effectively.

Good warm learner pool
Apr 2016 • Family
I can't comment on the rest of the facilities but we use the learner pool at least once a month. I find the changing area quite cold and the shower facilities are as you would expect at a council run establishment. The learner pool is warm but often has bits floating in it - little bits of floats, sock fluff? That said we go back regularly so it can't be that bad!
