Pioneer Leisure Centre’s pools now closed

Pioneer Leisure Centre’s pools now closed for three weeks

The pools at Pioneer Leisure Centre are now closed for three weeks, until Monday 2 August.

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

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): Junior Jazzes, Little Boppers, Hip Hop classes Preschool Playtime, Balls Balls Balls

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