Ridgeside Swimming Pool

Ridgeside updates

We are opening on the week beginning Monday 19th April 2021!

Our lovely Ridgeside Pool in Patcham is just gorgeous, being absolutely perfect for beginners through to stage 5 swimmers. The water temperature is warm, set to 34 degrees centigrade. This is a private pool with a good shallow end, and a deeper end allowing all our swimmers to progress in all depths. The pool is for just one group lesson at a time, so the feeling at Ridgeside is intimate and progression is fast. This pool is open all year round.

What our swimmers say


Since joining the club in April this year we have been so impressed with all the progress both our children have made. As a headteacher, I appreciate the kind (but no nonsense approach) of both instructors. They are nurturing, kind, have a good sense o humour and ensure all the children remain focused...

My 3 children have swam with Wet Wet Wet since 2009. They joined at just school age, and now my eldest is 14. They are all so confident in the water safe and really strong swimmers. The teachers go above and beyond and really care about if the children are happy and progress... I’m so glad my children have continued with Wet Wet Wet...

Over the years both my kids and myself have had lessons with Wet Wet Wet. Rachel and Matt got me from not being able to swim a length of front crawl to being really competent at it, and Rachel now (patiently!) teaches my daughter each week. The office are friendly, good communications and updates are clear. Classes are fairly priced and are at pools around Brighton on various days so lots of choice - thanks!

Everyone is so lovely and personable at WetWetWet. My little boy absolutely loves going and has grown in confidence and ability over the last few months. Highly recommend!
