Wellness & 25m pool openings

We are very excited to expand our service offerings to include the GESAC Wellness Pool and 25m indoor Pool from Wednesday 11 November.  Due to current COVID-19 restrictions online bookings are required for all visits. Bookings will open 7 days in advance at 9am and the initial bookings open Tuesday 10 November at 9am.

At this time, swimming pools are available for water exercise and rehabilitation purposes rather than recreational activities.  We anticipate recreational swimming and an adapted Learn to Swim program will commence from Monday 23 November.  Full details on Swimming Lessons will be available in the coming weeks.

For your swim, changerooms will be available for use within your 45minutes session. Please consider what works best for you to make the most for your session time. Dressing gowns and robes has been providing an efficient way to get dressed quickly for many swimmers who have been using the outdoor pools.

We will continue the limit of swimming to twice per week per swimming pool to help ensure everyone in the community gets a fair opportunity to swim. This will be reviewed if capacities are increased by the State Government or sessions are not being booked out. With the demand for swimming services much greater than usual we ask you to give us notice if you cannot attend a session so that we can release the booking to other swimmers.

All membership fees will continue to be waived and a price per session will be charged at the time of booking online using Trybooking.
