About Us > Our History

The Tadcaster Community Swimming Pool first opened in December 1994 and is one of the region's most popular swimming pool and fitness venues.

The Trust relies on the help and support of many volunteers who are managed by a small core of paid staff. Our volunteers are given full training free of charge. This includes National Pool Lifeguard, First Aid, Reception training and Maintenance training. Many of our volunteers are students, people wanting to return to the working environment, parents or retired people. See the links above for more information on volunteering at Tadcaster Swimming Pool.

A varied program offers general swimming, sessions for the Over 45's, aquafit, a disabled club, pool parties, a canoe club, a junior swim squad, parent and toddler sessions, adult lane swimming as well as an extensive swimming lesson and Fitness Suite program. There are links to all the clubs who hire the pool from the Trust. We also run intensive swimming courses throughout the school holidays.

The Trust receives no ongoing financial support and is funded through the community using the facility. All admissions help to keep the facility open.
