Is there somewhere to warm up?
Yes, you can warm up in the 10m section between the playing area and the rope across the middle of the pool.
Please do not swim on the other side of the rope, this area is for the public.
Please also respect the teams playing, and the referees, and stay well clear of play.
How warm is the pool?
That’s the big question. It depends on the Swiss Summer, which unfortunately this year is very similar to the Swiss Winter.
The pool is heated by solar power, so fingers crossed for some sunny days before the tournament.
Otherwise, wear a bathing cap under your hat, and consider wearing a surfer’s shorty if you don’t like cold water. Or swim faster.
