Calverton Leisure Centre swimming pool will reopen on Monday 7 September following a £50,000 refurbishment.
The changing rooms have new floors and walls and there has been an increase in the number of showers and private cubicles in both the male and female changing rooms as well as new changing room benches installed.
The toilets have also had some improvements with new sinks, urinals, hand and hair dryers added.
The leisure centre, situated on Flatts Lane, Calverton reopened its gym and classes in July following the easing of lockdown measures. The centre has implemented a number of measures to make it safe for customers to visit. All sessions must be booked in advance, there is a one-way system and spaces are limited for safety reasons.
The centre will be restarting its public swimming, 1-2-1 lessons, aqua aerobics and parent and toddler sessions from Monday and bookings can be made now on their website or by calling the leisure centre.
Gedling Borough Council, who operate the centre, has a membership offer that allows new members to join from £25 per month for adults and access any of the council gyms, pools, sports halls and classes across the borough. Concessionary memberships are also available at a reduced price. Members are no longer required to sign up for a contract period and the council is offering a free three-day pass to anyone who wants to try out the facilities.
Leader of the Council, Councillor John Clarke said:
“We are very pleased to be reopening Calverton Swimming Pool following the refurbishment. We think customers will be delighted with the new facilities and they will be able to get back into the pool and enjoy the sessions.
“We have worked really hard to make sure all of our leisure centres are safe for people to use and we have had some really positive feedback from people returning to our centres about the measures we have in place.
“It’s really important that people can have access to swimming pools, gyms and fitness classes near where they live and for it be reasonably priced. We want to make sure people have access to a healthier lifestyle and by updating our facilities, we can encourage more people to use their local leisure centre and improve their health and wellbeing.”
