Best Answer

The width of a lane in a swimming pool is 2.5m. During training a swimmer will use half of the lane and the other is for the other swimmer. They will rotate between lanes, by right hand will swim down and the left side will swim up.

What is the lane width for a 25 meter pool?

It depends on where you are swimming. For an answer on the standard width as defined by US Swimming I suggest you visit their website. If you are just looking for the distance at your pool, an easy way to find out is to simply measure the width of the pool and divide by the number of lanes you have. Another way would be to actually measure the distance between the eye hooks with a tape measure.
