pool etiquette

  • Please be reminded that during peak times you may be asked to 'circle' swim to enable all pool users to get the maximum benefits of the pool.
  • In order to ensure hygiene standards are upheld, we ask that all users shower before entering the pool.
  • Sandals and slippers may be worn in the indoor and outdoor pool area provided they are used in these areas ONLY and not worn outside.
  • Nappy guards must be worn by all children who are not yet toilet trained.

Diving Boards

The diving boards are open from Monday to Friday from 9:30am – 4:30pm and Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays from 9:30am – 6pm

diving safety rules

  • Only one person at a time is permitted on the diving boards.
  • Before diving, make sure the surrounding area in the pool is clear and that another member is not just about to dive from another board.
  • No diving from the sides of boards.
  • After completing your dive you must immediately vacate the pool to the side, swimming away from the diving area to avoid any collisions.
