McLaren Leisure  has easy wheelchair access and encourages any individual or groups with special requirements to use the centre. The building facilitates those with special requirements through having single level entry to the centre, lift access to all levels and a Poolpod hoist for safe and easy entry into the swimming pool.


Our brand new Pool Pod provides quick and simple access to our swimming pool for wheel chair users and swimmers with difficulty using stairs. Installation of an enhanced Poolpod pool lift system has made our swimming pool accessible to more children and adults with a much wider range of access needs. Our community owned leisure centre was constructed 18 years ago and whilst it had a standard pool hoist, that hoist was not suitable to provide access for those who cannot support their own weight or transfer to the pool unassisted. This left many people excluded from enjoying the benefits of swimming.

The installation of our new Poolpod allows all to enjoy the benefits of swimming!
