Pool Sessions 2013

Pool sessions at Ballyfermot Leisure Club/pool  are back on!!!

OPEN to all our club members, the sessions are 8-9pm on Tuesdays.

As the pool is small it may require a rotation basis over the hour (hour +) so we have agreed a flat fee of €5 per session per person regardless of numbers on the respective night. Payment can be made via transfer to the club account (if you need details please let me know) or cash if transfer is not possible.

Please remember a kayak helmet or swim cap is REQUIRED !
