Tenbury Swimming Pool to reopen following refurbishment

Tenbury Swimming Pool will reopen on Monday 12th October

October 6 2020

After an extended period of closure, Tenbury Swimming Pool is preparing to reopen its doors to the public on Monday 12th October. The reopening follows an extensive refurbishment and improvement project, the biggest to date in the 50 year history of the pool.

Working in partnership, Freedom Leisure and Tenbury Community Pool (TCP) are delighted to be reopening the centre following the investment.

The changes to the facility include:

  • An increased gym
  • Accessible and family changing with direct access to the pool
  • A multi-use exercise and community studio
  • Refurbished changing rooms
  • A new heating control system
  • A revised layout with new locations for offices and the reception
  • Replacement windows

To help customers return in a safe and clean environment, Freedom Leisure, which operates the centre on behalf of TCP, has introduced a number of safety measures in line with Government guidance. For example, all activities (including use of the gym and swimming pool) will need to be pre-booked as the number of people permitted in the facility will be limited. This will also support the NHS Test and Trace protocols in place.

Despite these changes to the service, Freedom Leisure is delighted to be able to welcome you back to your community leisure facility and the staff team at the centre are ready to welcome you back and provide the high standards of service enjoyed previously.

Barbara Selkirk, a trustee speaking on behalf of Tenbury Community Pool said:

“Many thanks to everybody for the many donations and help over the last 4 years to get this project going. We are delighted with the great news to be reopening following successful competition of the development works. We hope everybody enjoys the pool, extended gym, multi-use exercise and community studio and updated changing rooms.”

Ivan Horsfall-Turner, Managing Director, Freedom Leisure, added:

“Freedom Leisure is delighted to be reopening Tenbury Swimming Pool on Monday 12th October following the completion of refurbishment works. Our team are working hard to make sure the centre is ready and waiting to welcome back the local community, and we look forward to seeing everyone very soon.”
