Main Pool Closure and Repair
20/08/2014 - 5.00pm
Wolverhampton Swimming and Fitness Centre managed by Places for People Leisure, were notified on Friday 15th August that the main pool will be closed from 8th September in order that essential works can be undertaken to replace the pool base and surrounding tiles. We are advised that the pool will re-open on Wednesday 24th December, but unfortunately during this period the pool will not be available for public use.
Main Pool will be closed from Monday 8th September, re-opening on Wednesday 24th December.
We are delighted that the pool dam install has allowed the leisure pool to remain open during the closure with the following changes taking effect:
- The leisure waters will open from 9am - 10pm weekdays. This will include the use of the pool side health suite and bubble pool to those over the age of 16. Pool features (slides and water jets) will operate during the normal time of 10am - 9pm during school holidays and revert back to 4pm – 9pm term time.
- The studio pool will open from 7am - 9am weekdays for lane swimming.
If you wish to be kept up to date with the progress of works, why not follow us on Twitter (@wolvessfc1) or Facebook. Please also refer to our timetable for further information on the changes to our pool programme during the closure period. The amended timetable will display from 8th September or can be seen in advanced by using the date select box.
We do of course recognise this is a frustrating situation for our customers, and we would like to apologise for the inconvenience this matter is causing and thank you for your on-going patience and custom.
