Motcombe Pool

Built in 1904, Motcombe Pool has been serving the local community since the day it opened. With classes, lessons and general swim there is something for everybody at this stunning pool.

April 2021 update: currently closed

The latest statement received by Wave from Eastbourne Borough Council in relation to Motcombe Swimming Pool is as follows;

"It is not economically viable to open the pool during lockdown and while we continue to follow social distancing guidelines.  It is a similar case for many smaller public pools.

"Built nearly 120 years ago in 1904, there are a number of significant and complex maintenance issues at Motcombe Pool. The necessary repairs and modernisation required will be considered in due course, against other priorities within the council’s future capital programme of works and available funding."
