Braintree swimming centre

The teaching pool and leisure pool at the Braintree Swim and Fitness Centre will close from Wednesday 29th March until Saturday 20th May for full refurbishment. 

The main pool at the centre has been closed since 27th February 2017 for full repairs but similar issues have now been identified in the teaching pool and leisure pool.

The decision was made in order to minimise the disruption in the long term.

The gym and studio will remain open while the works is taking place.

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

Alternative swimming facilities are available at Witham Leisure Centre and Halstead Leisure Centre.
