    Hello!

    Please, help me with this sentence:

    I am going to buy a subscription to a swimming pool.

    Is it possible to say like this?

    My idea is I want to buy a special ticket that allows you to go to the swimming pool during some period of time. How do you call it in English?

    Thank you in advance!

    I think the term you are looking for is "membership." :)

    "I am going to buy a membership to a swimming pool." ;)
    Subscription would technically be correct, but foreign sounding to our ears. Subscriptions are often for products like newspapers or magazines. :) Usually something delivered to you on a regular basis (perhaps daily, once a week, or monthly).

    In the UK we also have multi tickets which are for perhaps 10 or 20 etc swimming sessions or you can buy a monthly or 2-monthly etc ticket that gives you unlimited access to the pool over a specific period of time.
