Royal Commonwealth Pool Events

In honour of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, Edinburgh Leisure is on the hunt for the next generation of divers. We are offering the opportunity for children to come and try diving with our experienced coaches at the Royal Commonwealth Pool to see if they have a talent for the sport.

Children should be between 5 and 16 years old, able to swim 10 metres unaided, confident in deep water and to jump and submerge in water without goggles.

Sessions are just £3 and bookable online here
