I have just been turned away from my local pool for turning up with too many children. Why is this?

It is hard to say why you might have been turned away as it depends upon the policy of the pool you were visiting, the number of children you had with you, the age of your children and their swimming ability.

You should ask the pool operator why this has happened.
