A stone's throw away from the Reid Avenue Royal College entrance is the Royal "Blue jewel" - the much enjoyed and loved aquatic resource of Royal College, that has produced many a champion swimmer, diver and water-polo player. The lovely pool which is still sought after for many a swimming meet, at school and national level, was declared open by the Hon. Dudley Senanayake (Prime Minister of Ceylon) on the 30th of October 1968. Since then the pool's Board of Management and the Royal College Union Aquatic Club have syncronised their time and energies to maintain this facility for the benefit of the students and public. The pool is 33 1/3 yards in length, has seven competitive lanes and is 14 feet at the deep-end. Diving is permitted, with strict adherence to the pool rules. Royal College students who are beginners from Grades 1 to 5 may learn Swimming as a subject in school. Students from Grade 6 to 13 use the pool after school hours from Monday to Friday; from 5.15 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. Coaches are available on request.
