Car Parking fees changes at LAC

As valued users of the London Aquatics Centre an agreement has been made to give club members who train at the centre access to the Better members car parking rate, if they become a Better Pay and Play members at the London Aquatics Centre.

To become a Pay and Play member and gain the Better member car parking rate, club members need to pay a yearly fee. The rates for the Pay and Play yearly memberships are:


Adult Concession: £10.00

Junior: £10.00

Junior Concession: £2.00


Junior members are aged 15 and under. Junior members can apply for a vehicle registration with their memberships as it is reasonable to assume that parents or guardians will be escorting swimmers.


If a swimmer already has a Pay and Play card for another Better operated leisure centre or borough, such as Waltham Forest or Greenwich, we will be able to ensure access for London Aquatics Centre  is allowed . To ensure this access members must register their vehicle details by providing a memberships number alongside the chosen vehicle number plate.


We want to ensure this process goes as smoothly as possible and is on a deadline to be completed by 4th March. I have therefore have nominated the following sessions below where I will be available to assist with getting club members signed up to the Play and Play memberships. I have tried to match these as much as I can to club training times. If there isn’t a convenient time below you can sign up at any time at reception.


Monday 27th February 7:30 - 8:30am

Tuesday 28th February 6:30 -7:30am

Wednesday 1st March 5 - 8pm

Thursday 2nd March 7 - 9pm


This process is only for those who wish to take advantage of the Better members rates for the London Aquatics Centre car park. If you travel by another method of transport to the park then you can continue as usual to attend your sessions.

Please remind all members if they are eligible for the concession rate they will need to bring with them proof of eligibility when they sign up.

As reminder the differing car park rates from 4th March are as follows:


Charges will apply from 7am, and there will be no charge for parking between 5.30am and 7am. The car parks are for venue users only, and blue badge holders remain free of charge.

More information about the car parking increase can be seen here.
