Swimming Pool, Steam Room and Sauna Closure

Swimming Pool, Steam Room and Sauna Closure

Working off of feedback received in our last members’ survey, we have moved the annual pool closure from Easter to December. As such the Swimming Pool, Steam Room and Sauna will be closed from 7th - 20th December. Works will be ongoing throughout the closure period. These works are being done in order to ensure the minimum about of inconvenience and maintain the ongoing quality of your swimming experience. This year’s works includes:

  • Full service of the existing automatic chemical dosing equipment controls
  • Full service of all pool plant and associated equipment
  • Replacement/repairs to damaged tiling within the pool base
  • Re-grouting where required in the pool area including pool surround and pool linings
  • Replacement and cleaning of the pool overhead light bulbs and fittings
  • Inspection to the pool underwater light fittings including replacement of 3 fittings
  • Spray cleaning of the pool and surround
  • Service of poolside showers
  • Inspection and service of sauna and steam room

As the pool is one of Europe’s largest suspended swimming pools, emptying and re-filling takes 3 days each, this is a process we take seriously in order to ensure that no damage is caused to its structure. Whilst the works are ongoing we have secured access to the Oasis swimming pool for our members at the reduced rate of £3.50 per swim. Please note you will need to show a valid YMCA Club membership card. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
