Pioneer Leisure Centre’s pools three-week closure

30 June 2004

Pioneer Leisure Centre’s pools three-week closure

The pools at Pioneer Leisure Centre will be closed for three weeks from 12 July to 1 August inclusive.

The main reason for the closure is so that new acoustic tiles can be installed in the ceilings above all pool areas. The pools need to be drained so that five workers can use scaffolding to get to the ceiling. While they’re up at the ceiling, all main lights will be re-affixed, and brackets for air conditioning units renewed.

Unfortunately the three-week closure includes one week of the school holidays (12 to 18 July inclusive).

However, there will still be a lot going on at Pioneer Leisure Centre, in the stadium and the dry areas, while the pools are closed. Upcoming events include TV2 Kidsfest events and school holiday programmes.

Upcoming events at Pioneer Leisure Centre Asia/Oceania Korfball Championships, in the evenings on 6-10th July and all day 11th July.

Winter Craft Show, on 16th - 18th July

Mainland Motorsport and Horsepower Show, on 31st July and 1st August.

Kidsfest events (please see KidsFest brochure for details): Pioneer Polar Rave(Dance Party), on 3rd July, 7-9pm. Junior Jazzes, Little Boppers, Hip Hop classes Preschool Playtime, Balls Balls Balls

Pioneer Holiday Programme For 5-9, and 10-13 year-olds
