Questions and answers prior to your visit

Do you have a kiosk?

Oh yes! We have a large selection of GB and OTTO ice cream, drinks from Kivik's, coffee, tea and mineral water. For those who are hungry, there is toast with cheese or cheese/ham (plain/sourdough/gluten-free). We also sell swimming badges, swimming goggles and swimming nappies. ATTENTION! We no longer accept cash. Swish or card only.

No, if you're not swimming but just shopping at the kiosk, you don't have to pay an entrance fee.

Are there changing rooms?
Yes there are separate changing rooms for men and women with two showers each. Remember that you must always shower before jumping in the pool!

Dogs must stay outside the gates. There is a large grassy area with trees that provide shade.

Is there space for recreational swimmers?
Yes. One long side of the 25-meter pool is normally set aside for recreational swimming. If you need more space, it can be smart to come when the weather is poor. If you swim for exercise, the weather may not matter anyway.

About us

In 1940, the residents of Eljaröd gathered for the grand opening of the new swimming pool. It had been built by the villagers themselves with manual labor and contributions from people in the area. 80 years later there was again a gathering in Eljaröd. Tomelilla municipality had decided that they would not invest more money in the bath. So "Föreningen Eljarödsbadet" was formed to fight for the survival of the bath.
