VICTOR E. BENSTEAD PLUNGE

3331 Torrance Boulevard
Torrance, CA 90503
(310) 781-7113

The Benstead Plunge is a heated Olympic sized 50 x 20 meter outdoor pool open year round. During the summer, the bulkhead is removed from the water for long course swimming. During the school year, the bulkhead divides the pool into two courses; a 25 yard and a 26 meter course. Take advantage of this great facility by making swimming at the Plunge a daily part of your life! Locker rooms have heated showers and there are locks available to rent or you can bring your own. The pool is heated year-round to about 80° to 81°.

Youth and Adult Swim Lessons offered year round! 

Summer Registration for Torrance residents begins on Tuesday, May 21. Non-resident Registration begins on Wednesday, May 29.
