Temporary Closure of the Swimming Pool


- 2017 Training Changes, News

At a meeting with Durham County Council yesterday we were informed the pool will be closed from mid September for a short period to allow major improvements to the reception and changing areas. Nobody will disagree this is long overdue.

There will be a pool closure from mid September and while there will be disruption to other Leisure Centre services it will not be a 3 month closure as we originally stated. We apologise for any confusion from our news release yesterday, please see this Durham County Council press release for further details.

It is very short notice but this was due to the snap general election being called and the subsequent ban on local authorities making announcements during the campaign period.

Alternate training venues and times will be announced very shortly and will be published on the website.

  • There is no change to the scheduled summer holidays.
  • Crossfit will continue as normal
  • Metafit may have to be cancelled if the new training venue can not accommodate
  • Our planned galas in October and December are likely to be affected

This will be a testing time for everyone at the club but if we all pull in the same direction we will get through it and by the end of the year we will have a much better facility to train in.
