Swimming pool accessibility
All of our facilities are accessible for wheelchair users. We have ramps and lifts installed at each site. If you visit any of our centres, our staff can show you the facilities and discuss your needs with you.
We have hoists at Active Medlock and Active Copley. The new pool at Active Hyde is also very accessible, due to its gradual step entry into the water and POD. Hyde’s Leisure pool is also accessible due to its sloped beach style entry into the water where staff will be on hand to assist you in wheeling the shower wheelchair into the water where you can float off and enjoy the pool. Tameside Wellness Centre has a moveable floor and access via a pool platform and a POD as well as gradual step entry.
Our gyms have wheelchair friendly resistance machines. Please ask a member of staff if you require any assistance.
