HELP SAVE YOUR LOCAL POOL WITH POOL WATCH The ASA believe that pools are at the heart of local communities and they would like them to stay that way. The support and resources they provide at www.pool- watch.co.uk can help local pools under threat of closure and communities that are looking to re open an existing closed pool, Pool Watch is a website dedicated to helping to keep swimming pools open where there is a clear need. It provides all the information and guidance needed to get started, including how to source evidence, analyse the need for a pool and source facility funding. With inspirational stories of pools that have been saved, the site helps communities make an informed decision on the best course of action to take for their pool.


LA FITNESS BACKS DOWN ON SWIMMING CHARGES


Gym chain LA Fitness is to back down on swimming charges that were introduced in January.


The leisure operator was pulled up by the Observer, which claimed it was breaching the terms and conditions of its own contracts when it introduced a fee of £8 per month for children to swim. Many members who had joined because their children could swim free of charge were unhappy with the new charge. The Observer argued it was unfair for LA Fitness to change its terms for existing members part way through a contract and so LA Fitness has cancelled the charge for those who have been swimming for free and all under fours. From June, children under four that accompany their parents will be allowed to go swimming free of charge and a new fee structure will be introduced.

Tipton Leisure Centre Gets The FT Leisure Treatment


Double Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington officially opened an £8m leisure centre in Tipton and made a big splash with youngsters by helping them out with their swimming lessons. She described the new Tipton Leisure


Centre as ‘absolutely amazing’ and said that she loved the building’s modern look adding: “I’ve seen many, many swimming centres in my time as I’ve been going to them since I was four, and this is really one of the best.”


F T Leisure designed and installed the water treatment and filtration systems for the 25 metre six-lane main pool and separate 12.5 metre learner pool. The filtration system includes medium rate sand filtration, combined with a chlorine dosing system, a pH correction system, PAC and a UV sterilisation system for maintaining excellent water quality.


The centre provides a range of affordable sport and leisure activities for all ages and abilities. As well as the two pools, there is a fully equipped gym, a dance studio and a ‘changing places’ area for people with disabilities including a ceiling hoist, changing bed and shower; the swimming pools also provide a pool hoist and chair system.
