Dear Members and Patrons,
As you’d be aware, schools and most user groups have all made the call to cancel their pool bookings at our Centre.
Because of the financial impacts of these measures have had on the operations of the centre, we’ve made the call to close a little earlier than normal. So, rather than next Friday, tomorrow, 18 March will be the last day to make a splash this summer.
The evidence and direction that we’ve been provided with by the Department of Health is that chlorinated pools are safe for people to be using and enjoying and we should be ‘business as usual’ for now.
Unfortunately, due the loss of the bookings for the rest of this week and next week it’s not practical or viable to keep heating and treating the pool at this time of the year (with those cool night our boilers really struggle to keep the pool warm).
Barossa Park YMCA Wellness Centre and Clarence Aquatic Centre YMCA will continue to operate with even stricter hygiene protocols than normal.
We’ll be offering our members a transfer to Clarence Aquatic Centre or a credit for next year.
Thanks for all your support and we look forward to seeing you next summer!
Stay safe, keep Informed, look after each other and we’ll see you today, tomorrow or next summer!
