Latest update on the Pool

We have now finalised the programme of works with our specialist contractors and are progressing to repairs on site.

With all projects such as this, we would usually spend months on the planning process prior to closure. This ensures that the works create as little disruption as possible. However, as we had to close the main pool suddenly following a routine inspection, this work has had to be done after closure rather than before.

The teaching pool will remain open throughout the works and we will strive to complete the repairs above the main pool by Christmas this year but, as this is an exceptionally complex and challenging project, that date can only be confirmed as we move further into the works over the coming months.

We are focused on delivering improved leisure facilities that continue to inspire and offer opportunities for all and Yarborough plays a crucial role in this. It is an incredibly important asset to the community and alongside our partners, Active Nation, we thank our members and users of the pool for their continued patience.
