Joining SASAC is easy; the section below contains the information needed to join. Ideally, we prefer that potential/new members come down to the club on a Wednesday evening as we’d love to meet you.

The pool is not open to the general public so you need to become a Cottonmill Swimming Member.

We offer two types of memberships:

Full annual membership
This gives you all year access to the pool. The membership can be taken out as:

  • An individual – £75
  • Family – £130 for 2 adults and up to 3 children under 18

Due to high demand, we have stopped running the wait list and now operate a lottery system. We will randomly select applications received between 1 April and 31 March. Any applications received after the deadline will be held for the following year.

If you do not hear from us by early June, unfortunately you have not been successful in securing a place and will need to re-apply. Applications will not be rolled forward to the next year.

Annual memberships typically run from April to April. We are not able to offer pro-rata.

Cold water membership
Access from 1 October to 31 March only. This membership can only be taken as an individual (cost of £35)

We are expecting less demand for this, so if you apply you should receive your membership.

If you want to transfer from this to the full membership, you will need to follow the same process as above.

If you would like to apply, please complete the membership form and send to

Social Membership

We also offer social membership of the club for those members who don’t dive / swim with the club, but wish to take part in club events.
