Unlike some health / fitness / sports providers, the providers of this venue do not require you to be an XCITE member to use the facilities.  Instead, you can attend when you wish and pay for that visit.

Please contact the Swimming Pool for up-to-date details of Armadale Barracudas Swimming Club sessions.

In the refurbishment of facilities in early 2009, a row of changing room lockers was removed to improve changing facilities, thereby creating 6 larger changing cubicles for families and 2 baby-changing cubicles.
