Pool Closures at London Aquatics Centre this November

This month, the London Aquatics Centre will be hosting the International Swimming League (ISL). 

The International Swimming League (ISL) is a brand-new event that will change the world of swimming. The inaugural season will see a full series of worldwide events taking place across the year, stopping off at the London Aquatics Centre for a two-day spectacular. The four European teams will go head to head in this derby match on 23 and 24 November. Teams are made up of athletes from around the world, not by swimmers' nationality - so the competition will be fierce.

Due to the event there will be a number of pool closures which may affect you.  

The Competition pool will be closed or operate at reduced hours during the following dates:

Competition pool closes at 6 pm on November 17th

Competition pool open at 25 metres on November 18th, 19th
