Heckington Pool has opened with a SPLASH!! Despite some decidedly dodgy weather for our first few sessions, the rain has stopped, the sun has been shining and our wonderful community have been enjoying all we have to offer! Family swims are an amazing success and we've already taken in the region of 40 party hire bookings, with those already taken having had a fabulous time!


You can find out all you need to know by wandering around our website, visiting our Facebook page, or popping poolside, where our wonderful volunteers will be glad to help.


See our Timetables page for further details of timetabled sessions and for this season's swim fees. A downloadable timetable is available here. We have a Snack Bar that serves hot and cold drinks and ice lollies but we're not just open to bathers. Even if you're not swimming you are welcome to pop in and purchase your ices and cold drinks from us.


Situated on Howell Road in Heckington, adjacent to the school behind our wonderfully decorated beach hut themed fencing, we are a community facility operated and maintained by volunteers, funded from pool takings and community fundraising/donations. We are open to all age groups and abilities.

Open from the end of May to beginning of September each year, our pool is a constant 1 metre deep, heated to a delicious 84F/29C and makes an ideal venue for summer fun, parties and celebrations as well as swimming, keeping fit and as a place to make new friends or volunteer for your community.


Heckington Pool is a developing community facility managed and maintained by dedicated volunteers on behalf of the Parish Council. These volunteers work both poolside and behind the scenes on the management Committee, ensuring the pool is clean, clear and appropriately chlorinated prior to every bathing session.


We are pleased to offer public swimming, family time, 1-2-1 and group lessons/water confidence sessions, Toddler Splash time and a very successful Summer Swim School. Our exclusive ladies evening swims are   always popular, so much so that we now run two each week!  We are also introducing an Adult Swim   session to this year’s timetable so that couples and men can have their own pool time too.


We are also adding regular Sunset ’Glow Swim’ late  evening sessions to our timetable following a fabulous end of season Glow Swim last year. These will take place monthly, following on from ladies swim on Mondays. And, If they prove as popular as we think, we can also host more, following on from Tuesdays adult swim too!

We have a large gazebo providing sunshine shade as well as welcome cover from those inevitable summer showers! And a gas barbeque is available to hire for private parties too, which is also put to very good use at our now famous BBQ Dip sessions, organised regularly throughout the season!


Bathing and attendance is subject to our Admissions Policy and Poolside Rules and we respectfully ask that you honour them.


All staff in attendance are unpaid Volunteers, who dedicate their time for your enjoyment of our facility. Again, we respectfully ask that if requested, you pay attention to and follow the directions of the staff member on duty. The Policy and Rules are in place for your own safety and that of other bathers. Many thanks.
