Description

The pool is 36 x 14 metres. There are two slides. In addition there is a small pool (12 x 7 metres) for children.

Other facilities include a gym, fitness-studio and cafeteria.

It is operated by the Hampton Pool Trust, a registered charity (number 294117) and not for profit company (number 01870925). It has been managed by YMCA London South West on behalf of the Trust since 2007. The Trust's fund-raising activities also include summer open-air concerts.

History

The lido was built in 1922 after plans approved in 1914 were delayed due to the outbreak of the First World War.

In 1939 a diving pit and filtration system was added and in 1961 further improvements included widening the pool, adding a new building and a car park.

By 1980 Richmond Council decided to close the lido for financial reasons. After local community campaigning, in which over £60,000 was raised, the pool was reopened in 1985. The management of the pool was transferred to Hampton Pool Ltd, a company created by the campaign group.
