Manchester Aquatics Centre (MAC)

The Manchester Aquatics Centre is one of the biggest and best swimming facilities in the country and was originally built for the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games.

You can choose from a variety of membership options with special discounted rates for students and staff. If you don’t intend using the facility regularly then you can always pay-as-you-go.

The centre also hosts a number of international swimming events and galas and is the training facility for the British Paralympic Swimming Squad, so you may also get the opportunity to see some world-class swimmers in action.
