“We are looking forward to welcoming the residents of Sheffield and surrounding areas back into the leisure pool and bookings will re-open at 12 noon on Wednesday January 26th”.

Ponds Forge also sees over 500 children attend swimming lessons each week on its Swim England, Learn to Swim programme and welcomes over 850,000 visitors to Sheffield each year, with its comprehensive event programme generating over £10m per year to the local economy.
