What is the etiquette?

If you are respectful towards others and always sit or lie on a sheet or towel you will be fine.

Conduct which makes or could be reasonably be viewed as likely to make others feel uncomfortable or be harmful to them will be dealt with by a representative of Glasgow Continental speaking to the swim user and either issuing a warning or banning them.

As guidance, the following are examples of conduct which is not acceptable.

In the unlikely event you experience or witness behaviour which concerns you, please report it to a member of the door team or pool-side staff on the same evening.
