Hydrotherapy Pool Available to the Public

The HUB's hydrotherapy pool has proved a popular addition to the Proact Stadium and members of the public can place bookings to use the impressive facility.

The hydrotherapy pool has an underwater treadmill to set for running as well as water jets to allow users to swim continuously in the relatively small space.

The pool is currently used by people recovering from operations, autistic children who are unable to face the noise and disruption of a public swimming pool, those with a variety of arthritic and other chronic conditions and those just wanting to swim in a private environment.

Star midfielder Gary Roberts described some of the benefits he and his fellow squad members get from the hydropool. 

He said: "It's a great facility to have for our lads who are playing a lot of games, especially at times like the busy schedule over Easter.

"We go over there, get in there and get our recovery done. You can set the recovery to different paces and how strong the water is coming at you. It's really good for you and I get a lot of use out of it, being over 30 now."

John Croot from the Community Trust gave further details of the pool and its role at The Hub - in the East Stand of the Proact Stadium.

"The hub as a whole is a partnership between the club and the Community Trust," he said. "The pool really emphasises it more than anything else.

"It's got a great number of service users and organisations such as local schools, physios, disability groups and of course the players as well - the first team come in after most games and use the treadmill to warm down.

"It's great, it's exactly what we envisaged."

To book a session or to make an appointment to view the pool you can contact Darren McQuade on 01246 264030 ex 6005 or email him on
