London's Diving Pools

There are only two swimming pool facilities in the London Region with 10m diving platforms:

  1. The London Aquatic Centre, Stratford;
  2. The National Sport Centre, Crystal Palace;

Plus there are diving boards in the following centres;

St George’s Leisure Centre (1m, 3m)

Highgrove Leisure Centre (1m, 3m, 5m)

Putney Leisure Centre (1m, 3m, 5m)

Morden Leisure Centre (1m, 3m, 5m)

Barnet Copthall Leisure Centre (1m, 3m, 5m)

The London Aquatic Centre is the pre-eminent competition swimming pool in the UK and has a diving pool with a full set of boards and has the facility for synchronised diving and spectator seating for 4,000 spectators.

The National Sport Centre has a diving pool with a full set of boards (but no synchronised arrangement), and spectator seating for 3,000 spectators.

The Walthamstow Pool has diving boards

The above pools are capable of supporting synchronised swimming.


There is a significant gap in supply as Swim England analysis shows Greater London need for more diving facilities particularly those which enable synchronised diving and have dry-dive training facilities.  These pools will additionally be capable of providing synchronised swimming to Regional competition level.
