To wonder why on earth people in the UK have outdoor swimming pools?

We're looking at houses at the moment and are coming across some that have outdoor pools. Why?! In the UK you'd hardly ever get to use them! And it's usually houses that could have had the money better spent in other ways.

YANBU - I think they're a complete waste of money in this country. I've never quite understood why anyone (unless loaded to the point where money is no object) would want the hassle and cost of maintaining any sort of private swimming pool when you can join a perfectly nice leisure club and use their facilities.

I know a couple of people who have outdoor pools in the UK. I would have one if I could afford to. There is nothing like swimming in the open air and going to a communal one is not the same thing at all.
In the meantime, there are the Ladies Ponds
