Joy over new three-year contract to operate village swimming pool


Wave Leisure Trust has been awarded the contract to operate Ringmer Swimming Pool for a further three years.

The swimming pool next to Ringmer Academy has been operated by Wave Leisure for the last five years. In that time, the programme has been developed and it has become a thriving hub of the community offering swimming lessons for older and younger children and water based exercise classes. It is also a location for the Ringmer Children’s Triathlon and host to a few aquatic clubs.

Peter Crowley, Managing Director of Wave Leisure Trust, said: “To be awarded the continuation of the contract in Ringmer is fantastic news for us and the local community. It means we can continue to work closely with our partners in the village and surrounding areas to develop the pool programme into a thriving location delivering precisely what the residents want.

“We also look forward to continuing our work with the Academy in ensuring that physical activity and a healthy lifestyle remains a high priority for the students and their families.”
