Went a couple of times to the University of Education swimming pool.
They open extremely early, 5.30am
When I go there (6.30 to 8.30, depending on traffic) there are a few people but it’s easy to swim around
Due to the limited amount of people, there’s no need to wait in line to use one of the showers
Comfortable environment, though I wish the water was a bit colder
There’s a chillout area next to the main swimming pool, I don’t use it but many people seem to enjoy it
I can see it being crowded during the day, and that could be a problem both for swimming and having a shower afterward. I passed by there in the early afternoon to get some stuff and it looked quite packed
Water is only 1.4m deep, I wish some lanes were 2m+ to keep all the ahma/abei away
No cute girls in swimming suits, feelsbadman
The area to change clothes is really tiny
All in all, since I only care about the swimming part, I enjoy that swimming pool. Maybe next month I’ll try Daan as well, but last time I checked the attendance counter in the early morning there was already an upsetting amount of people.
