History & Facts

The Dollan was opened in 1968 and was the first Olympic length swimming pool in Scotland (it is now one of 5, the next closest in Tollcross). It is a commonly held myth in the town that the pool was built a few inches short of the competition-length 50m, but this is not actually true. The pool does not meet the full Olympic standard as it only supports 6 lanes rather than the required 10.

Features

The centre features the main 50m pool with large spectators gallery, a separate kidís pool, water flumes, sauna, and a state of the art gymnasium. The main pool features a variable-depth floating floor and a boom that is used to split the pool into two separate 25m pools.

Competition

This year (2011) the Dollan baths will host the swimming events in the Commonwealth Children's Games. More details can be found here.

Competitive Swimming

The pool is home to the East Kilbride Amateur Swimming Club (EKASC) and is used by the club for training and competitions. Due to the closure of the Dollan, EKASC had been training in a number of different locations, and are now very happy to be back where they belong!

Address: Dollan Aqua Centre, Town Centre Park, Brouster Hill, East Kilbride.
