Update: Closure of all three pools at Braintree Swim and Fitness Centre to minimise future disruption

Update: Closure of all three pools at Braintree Swim and Fitness Centre to minimise future disruption

The teaching pool and leisure pool at the Braintree Swim and Fitness Centre closure will be extended.

The main pool at the centre has been closed since 27th February 2017 for full repairs but similar issues were identified in the teaching pool and leisure pool. The decision was made to close the teaching pool and leisure pool at the Braintree Swim and Fitness Centre for full refurbishment from Wednesday 29th March and were due to re-open on Saturday 20th May. 

Regrettably, there is unforeseen additional works which are being undertaken and it is unlikely that Fusion will be able to re-open until the middle of June. They haven’t given us a definitive date and we expect to have this information by the beginning of June. 

We know it is causing inconvenience to swimmers and families but we hope people understand that the rebuilding of the swimming pool tank is a major structural project and this extended deadline is unavoidable. The work will result in newly refurbished swimming facilities for all and as soon as we know the confirmed re-opening date Fusion will contact customers

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
