Canby, OR (01/15/2021) — At the UK Pool and Spa Awards held virtually in December, S.R.Smith’s SwimWall System  was awarded the Gold Standard for Pool Product of the Year and Silver Standard for  Commercial Pool Project of the Year for the University of Bath SwimWall project.  

The University of Bath identified the need to create alternate means of generating revenue and  provide increased flexibility for their London 2012 Legacy Pool, a leading performance sport  center for student and non-student swimmers. The pool is used for training Olympic caliber  athletes but also serves the student body and greater community. The installation of the  S.R.Smith SwimWall allows the University to segment the pool for multiple uses at the same  time without affecting the structure of the overall pool or limiting their ability to serve the British  Swimming Elite Programme. 

This project was initiated by the coaching staff who were tired of wasting time with setup and  dismantle of the dated turn panels as well as the swimmer’s inability to properly train for short  course and interval sprints. As a result, they began to search for new options for the 50m  Olympic pool. They found that the S.R.Smith SwimWall System provided a solution to their  problems. The SwimWall allows coaches to increase training time and overall pool utilization by running mixed programs concurrently. 

Stephen Baddeley, Director of Sport at the University of Bath said; 

“We are delighted with our SwimWall System which provides a really firm turning surface for  the many elite swimmers who use our facility. My staff delights in the ease and speed with  which they are raised and lowered, while the flexibility created by being able to divide our pool  into 16, rather than 8, separate lanes has improved our customer offer and been particularly  useful during these COVID-constrained times.”
