Temporary pool news update

Andover Leisure Centre customers are going to be provided with a temporary 25 metre swimming pool with 4 lanes, for the duration of the build of Andover's new leisure centre. 

Members Temporary Pool update

We have received an update on the temporary pool at Andover which we wanted to share with you. The building of a temporary swimming pool for Andover has seen rapid progress since May when it started to be erected at the Shepherds Spring Lane car park. The pool building and concrete base are now in place and the project is nearing completion.

However, we have since been informed that Total Swimming who are responsible for delivering the pool are now unable to meet the initial contractual completion date due to a breakdown in their supply of certain building materials.

Total Swimming are working to progress the temporary pool as quickly as possible and have given a revised opening date of 29 September.

We will be contacting customers who have made a booking separately however should you have any booking related queries at all then please contact the Temporary Pool booking team on enquiries@andoverleisurecentre.org. In the meantime, customers are still able to use Fleming Park Leisure Centre in Eastleigh and River Park Leisure Centre in Winchester, under the current arrangements.

Construction on the new Andover Leisure Centre which is being undertaken separately by us as part of the leisure management contract has already begun and is on track to open Spring 2019 as planned.

We would like to confirm that your membership arrangements remain as they currently are and we shall be in touch with any further updates.

Thanks for your patience,

All the best,

The Andover Leisure Centre team
