The last Wednesday Evening canal session will be on 12th September. From 19th September we will be at the QMC Sports Centre Pool between 7pm and 9pm.

BADCC holds swimming pool sessions in the pool in Queen Mary's College sports centre on Wednesday evenings from September over the winter until the following April. Click Here for map pointer to QMC. 

This is the pool programme for Autumn 2018. Please check it regularly - things may change. 

The BADCC pool phone is operational again - a newer Nokia model is able to receive a signal despite the refurbishment of QMC's swimming pool which has seriously reduced the phone signal inside!


  • For the first (7pm) session, children must be changed and already in buoyancy aids at 7 o'clock.
  • Everyone should arrive in good time for their session.
  • Open Sessions can be pre-booked the week before. Pre-bookings will only be taken between 7:30 and 9pm (to ease pressure on desk during first half hour.) People can come to the pool and book or use the pool phone.
  • For the Open Sessions, we will aim to have at least one coach (preferably more) available for tuition and advice.
