For an open swimming pool .. I don't tag unless I know where these 
things are. A reasonable person would assume such things are available.
If I know where they are then tag the building
room_dressing=yes ?

Or if you want the detail then tag the building, then add nodes for each 
facility, placed appropriately with their correct tags.

For an roofed swimming pool it would be tagged
leisure=sports_centre (or swimming_pool=yes if that is all that is offered?)
room_dressing=yes ?
