Pool male ban is so unfair

Saddleworth Road


We recently visited the new Sowerby Bridge swimming pool on a Sunday afternoon with our two young grandchildren.

We were impressed with the facilities and the new pools were excellent.

Our main problem was after entering the training pool at 2.20 we were asked to leave the at 2.30 because this time was allocated for “women and children only“.

Why is this? Had I taken my grandchildren on my own we would have had to leave the pool after only being in 10 minutes.

This seems to us to be very un-fair to dads and grandpas who like to take their children to the new pool.

Can any explanation be given as to why this is, considering the changing room arrangement is a multi sex changing area?
