12 JULY 2022

The Shire of Wollondilly has recently awarded a contract for the replacement of the roof panels above the indoor pools following irreparable storm damage. To provide contractors with the ability to safely replace all roof panels, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the indoor aquatic centre during the work period.

The indoor aquatic centre will temporarily close from Sunday, 17 July.

At this stage, we don’t have a confirmed date for when the indoor aquatic centre will reopen however, we do anticipate the works will take several weeks.

During the closure period, the following programs and services will be affected:

  • Learn to Swim
  • Aqua Aerobics
  • Squad

To enable continued access to a pool, in partnership with the Shire, we are preparing to redirect heating to the 50m pool so it may operate throughout the closure period. At this stage, we anticipate the outdoor pool will be available from Monday 01 August. We will contact you should there be any changes to this.

For the duration of the indoor aquatic centre closure, we will be providing members and general patrons with regular updates on social media and via our e-newsletter. Please stay tuned to our website, Facebook, and Instagram for more information on this during the period.

We know you’ll have questions, so we’ve prepared some Frequently Asked Questions for further information.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience. The health and safety of our patrons is a priority for us, so we appreciate your understanding

During this time, the Shire of Wollondilly’s contractors will be undertaking maintenance works and upgrades to the indoor aquatic centre roofing panels. Contractors are also undertaking some general maintenance works in the plant room; therefore the indoor aquatic centre will be a worksite for the duration of the closure.

We understand that this is short notice, however after ongoing shipping delays and contractor shortages, we have been given a slim window of opportunity to complete the roof upgrade. We want to take this opportunity to upgrade the roof panels for our local community, rather than risk further delays or damage.

Swimming lessons will operate as normal on Saturday, 16 July. During the closure period, all learn-to-swim classes will be placed on temporary suspension. The Centre will continue to reserve your child’s day and time of swimming lessons. We will suspend all payments during the closure period.

Subject to availability, we may have places to transfer your enrolment to Moss Vale War Memorial Pool or another BlueFit Swimming location. If you would like to discuss options for the temporary transfer of your child’s enrolment, please email us at picton@bluefit.com.au.

During the closure, Aqua Fitness classes will not be operating. However, to ensure our aqua participants keep active during the closure, we have converted some Aqua Fitness classes to dry Aqua Fitness classes, operated by the same friendly instructors. Please refer to our website for all classes available during the closure.

Squad swimming will operate as normal on Saturday, 16 July. The program will then temporarily cease until Monday 01 August. It is at this time we anticipate the outdoor 50m pool will be at the appropriate temperature to enable lap swimming to occur. If this changes, we will communicate with squad families.

We know that staying active is a critical component of your health and well-being. The gym and group fitness programs will continue to operate during the closure period. We have automatically upgraded aquatic-only members to receive access to the gym and group fitness classes for the duration of the closure. You can access these facilities by visiting the customer service desk at each facility and showing your membership card.

During this time, Group Fitness will continue to operate as scheduled, however you may notice some minor changes to the program to accommodate Aqua Fitness classes on the timetable. Please see reception at each visit who will direct you to the appropriate room.

For the duration of our roof replacement project, we will be providing members and general patrons updates on social media and in our e-newsletter.

You can suspend your membership free of charge for the duration of the roof upgrade.

To suspend, please fill out the form below. 

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience. The health and safety of our patrons is a priority for us, so we appreciate your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you back once the roof upgrade has been completed.
