Competition Swimming Pool Design
Does your facility need a state-of-the-art pool for hosting competitive swimming events? Do you need a pool that can meet the training requirements of your swim team? When it comes to athletic pool design, Wrightfield Pools’s partnership with Natare mean we can meet your requirements. We design to Sport England’s guideline for competition pools ensuring compliance with all the latest standards. With Natare’s pools certified to all current USA standards including FINA, NCAA, YMCA and NAHSA we can deliver pools that are optimised for competition and capable of delivering record breaking times.
A Natare competition pool is quite simply, a fast pool.
Natare pools provide the neutral pool environment essential for training and competition; the various competition pool components work together efficiently and economically:
- State-of-the-art perimeter recirculation systems (pool gutters) eliminate the waves and surge that slow swimmers down.
- Moving bulkheads designed for complete flow-through wave absorption to prevent wave rebound.
- Gutter and bulkhead surfaces finished with safe, slip-resistant GPM grating.
- Air cushion safety Sparger (Bubbler) Systems to cushion a diver’s impact and provide a clear visual reference on the water’s surface.
Competition pools include the standard 25-yard, 25-meter and 50-meter pools in configurations suitable for all levels of competition and training. Our industry-standard stainless steel pools last through decades of high activity with little to no maintenance.
Natare bulkheads - Designed to meet the your individual requirements.
Easily moved, Natare bulkheads can be repositioned to accommodate both imperial and metric competition courses, or used to host two aquatic events simultaneously such as scuba diving lessons and water aerobics.
A box-truss construction minimizes horizontal and vertical deflection, making Natare bulkheads capable of supporting more than 100 pounds per square foot. The top and sides of the bulkhead are covered with an ASTM-certified slip-resistant PVC grating that dissipates wave rebound for competitive swimming, maintains proper water circulation, and provides a safe and secure walking and turning surface.
