Appropriate Swimwear Policy
The Sands Torquay Health Club is committed to safe swim practices for everyone. The intent of having a safe Swimwear Policy is to maintain a safe, clean and inviting environment for yourself and all other patrons.
Wearing bulky clothing while swimming can cause distress and/or injury to the swimmer. Clothing, other than swimwear, can also create problems with water clarity, pool disinfectant and the water filtration system, which may impact the safety of our patrons and staff.
It is for these reasons we do ask that you only wear approved swimwear.
Only recognised swimwear can worn in the water.
Adequate and hygienic recognised swimwear must be worn at all times in the water.
Infants are required to wear recognised waterproof Aqua nappies.
Rash shirts are recognised as swimwear.
If you do not wear the appropriate swimwear you will be asked to leave the water. Inappropriate swimwear includes and is not limited to:
Cotton (including tee shirts)
Please note that floaties and floatation devices are not life saving equipment, nor are they ever a replacement for a parent/guardians constant supervision.
