The big pool at the Porchester Centre is reserved exclusively for IVC from 20.15 to 21.00 on Wednesdays. The pool is bigger than most local pools and is newly refurbished. They take out the lane swimming ropes specially for us giving a better swimming experience. We can usually get access to the changing rooms from 20.00. Please follow guidance from pool staff on safety. Do not pay on entry because we have already paid for a block booking; pay our treasurer on exit. Afterwards we meet at a nearby pub. Underground stations are nearby (Queensway, Bayswater and Royal Oak).
