Using the Nuffield Health Pool

The roof of the swimming pool in Cedars Sports is in a serious condition and needs to be completely replaced to ensure that the pool remains safe to use.

Regrettably, this means that the pool will be closed for three months, from Wednesday 1 September until Monday 6 December. The remainder of Cedars Sports, including the gym and changing rooms, will continue to operate as usual.

While the Cedars Sports pool is closed, members will be able to use the pool at Nuffield Health in Leatherhead free of charge. Access will be managed via Cedars Sports Reception and the online booking system on this website.

Please be aware that members must fill in and complete the Nuffield Health PAR-Q form prior to their first visit which you can access here (Members can leave the contact method blank but will need to write ‘Royal Automobile Club‘ as the company).
