Salcombe Swimming Pool is currently unable to open due to a lack of lifeguards. 

Salcombe Swimming Pool is still searching for lifeguards in order for them to open their doors. 

A statement from the Salcombe & District Swimming Pool Association said: "Despite advertising and searching - we do NOT have enough lifeguards to be able to open the pool as planned at the end of May.
"If lifeguards (or future lifeguards - we may be able to support training costs) want to work for us, then we can review the situation.
"Hopefully we will be able to resolve this issue and open YOUR pool later in the season."

If you are considering becoming a lifeguard, there is a five-day course in Totnes, starting on the 1st of June, at a cost of £200, something that the Salcombe & District Swimming Pool Association say they "may be able to assist with". 

In order to take part in the course and become a lifeguard, you must be 16 or older and be able to jump/dive into deep water; swim 50m in less than 60 seconds; swim 100m continuously, front and back, in deep water; tread water for 30 seconds; surface dive to the floor of the pool and climb out unaided without ladder or steps. 

If you would be interested in becoming a lifeguard at Salcombe Swimming Pool, you can contact the team via their Facebook page
