Hi!
After years, i want to go swimming again. It’s been a while. In an indoor swimming pool. I know it’s no problem outside by wheelchair but indoor? Can you just enter with your own wheelchair (with the dirty tires from outside) or do i need to switch to a special one or cover up the wheels or ...?
Who knows more?
Thx for you tips.

Hi clareen

That depends on the pool center.
There are defection mats or you can just clean the wheels by yourself.
There are special wheelchairs too in some centers but i wouldn’t want to use them. There not fitted.
Best to call the center and ask in advance.



cheers mate
