The £11 m pool opened in 2003 following the demolition of Wales' national pool, the Wales Empire Pool in Cardiff, in 1998 due to the construction of the Millennium Stadium, and served as its replacement for a short period, until the construction of the £32 m Cardiff International Pool.
The facility, which also has a 25m x 9.5m training pool and 1,200 spectator seats, is one of the facilities used to train Wales' world class aquatic sports athletes and houses the headquarters of the Swim Wales, formerly the Wales Amateur Swimming Association.
Some swimmers used the pool to train for the London 2012 Olympics. The facility was built with funding from Sport Wales, Swansea Council and Swansea University and is built on the site of the university's sports centre.
