Clackmannanshire Council Online

Swimming at Dollar Academy

Swimming at Dollar Academy

Saturdays 10th July to 14th August, 9-11am
(2 sessions)

All sessions are now fully booked

The Council has arranged for 2 lane swimming sessions for Clackmannanshire residents at the swimming pool at Dollar Academy for a trial period this summer.

Sessions must be booked through our online booking system. Please arrive at the poolhouse door no earlier than 5 minutes before your session.

The facility is not a commercial pool but we have been given the opportunity to use it during the summer period while discussion and consultation take place regarding a new Council facility. 

If you have any queries, please email sportsdevelopment@clacks.gov.uk. Do not contact Dollar Academy.
