COVID-19 Update

To all our valued customers we have some information to share with you. The health and wellbeing of all our customers is the absolute priority for everyone at Jesmond Pool and Gym. We are following government guidelines, so the building is currently closed. Keeping fit and active though remains important for general health and wellbeing and is the best way to build resilience to infection. We are working to provide our customers with ideas and solutions to maintain activity levels in the home including a programme of exercise classes online bookable here and a series of prerecorded sessions accessible here

Due to continuing uncertainty about the future we are not offering direct debit membership for now except for our online only offering. All sessions are also bookable individually or in defined bundles.

We will continue to monitor the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak on health and leisure facilities and will update our website and social media pages with all relevant information regarding re-opening.

We are determined to make sure that Jesmond Pool And Gym is sustainable for the future and keep it at the heart of Jesmond life. We’ve survived two world wars and the threat of closure in 1991, and we’re still here as a hub at the centre of our community. But as an independent community-led business we face a massive challenge and are going to need your help and support in the months ahead. We appreciate money will be tight for many people in these uncertain times, but if you are in a position to help us financially, please do.

Thank you again for your understanding and ongoing support during these challenging and unprecedented times and we hope to see you again soon!

Welcome to Jesmond Pool and Gym, an award winning social enterprise operating as a charity since our reopening in 1992. We are dedicated to working to promote health and fitness in the community across all ages from children and students through to older adults and work with local GPs to facilitate access to our activities and classes.

In our 22m pool we offer lane and family swimming sessions, aqua fit classes, Masters sessions, pool parties, mermaid experiences and chill out sessions. Jesmond Aqua School offers private and group swimming lessons for children and adults. We deliver RLSS accredited lifeguard courses on a regular basis.

In addition to the pool, we have 2 gyms ‘The Basement Gym’ and ‘The Poolside Gym’. The Basement gym houses a variety of different equipment from a range of cardiovascular equipment and weight stack machines to free weight bars and dumbbells.

The Poolside Gym was refurbished in 2019 with all new hi-tech equipment including cardiovascular equipment , weight stack machines and even a sledge. Our in house personal trainer can provide guided sessions in the gyms and our expert in exercise for older adults runs dedicated sessions for the over 50s.


In our upstairs activity room, we run a range of different exercise classes delivered by expert teachers many of which moved online during lockdown. From children’s dance classes to Tai Chi we hope to cater for all tastes. In addition the Jesmond Joggers run out of the pool providing a collegiate group for keen runners around the community. The activity room also hosts a variety of other activities including childrens’ parties
Jala Therapies, hosted in the pool building, provides a range of massage and relaxation treatments.

“Re the pool generally – the current system for adult swimming is excellent and the staff have really been on top of it since the very start – I have been telling everyone I know how good it is.

I also know that some of my fellow swimmers are coming from Durham/Middlesborough/Heydon Bridge because their council (or other) run pools are not open. Like Jesmond Library, Jesmond Pool & Gym is very much at the leading edge – we are lucky to have it!”
