Description by Outdoor Swimming Society on behalf of Outdoor Swimming Society

Enjoy a Tropical Heated Boxing Day Swim at Buckfastleigh Pool

Sessions available for kids, families and more serious swimmers AND a very special night swim with glowsticks and fairy lights. They'll be music and games as well as a range of cakes and hot drinks.

Last year's Tropical Boxing Day Splash was a huge sucess and tickets for some sessions nearly all went - so get your tickets early and don't miss out!

Tickets are £8 per person - please ensure you book the correct timed slot (lane swim, fun swim, general swim or night swim).


We regret that refunds cannot be given under any circumstances should you be unable to swim on the day. However, if the event is cancelled in its entirety we will refund your entry fees less the payment handling fee.

    On the 14th April 2015 after a protracted and fraught process, Teignbridge District Council transferred the trusteeship of Buckfastleigh Open Air Pool to the local 'Friends' group, along with its attached Victoria Park and Bungalow youth club building. This meant that a £75,000 Sport England grant to upgrade facilities could be awarded before the deadline to use it ran out, and work began last week to strip old tiling out before contractors arrive next week to fit a new lining. A beautiful new logo and a lick of paint this season will propel the pool into an exciting new phase, including longer opening hours and its use out of season by those wild swimmers who might want to train in cold water or hire it.
