Petersfield Open Air Swimming Pool (POASP) is located in the heart of the historic market town of Petersfield, and has been in existence since 1962. It is the only public open air pool in Hampshire and attracts visitors from the locality and further afield. It is run as an independent charitable trust managed by a board of volunteer trustees. It is a considered a “treasured gem” by the community who recognise it as a venue that provides a lovely welcome atmosphere to swim outdoors, meet up at the café, and partake in community events. // The trust is reliant on ticket sales, donations and fundraising in order to cover its operational and maintenance costs, and grant contributions for larger capital cost items. // The trust is committed to the pool being available for fitness, swimming lessons and general leisure to meet the needs of the local community. Dedicated lane swimming takes place at certain times throughout the day, as does public swimming. Swimming lessons are provided to local schools, in small groups for children as well as private lessons and holiday training courses. The pool also runs a children’s swimming club and is used by local sports clubs.
