Newport Swimming Pool

Newport Swimming Pool closure - update May 2022

As you may be aware in December 2021, the council announced a programme of work at Newport Swimming Pool to reduce the amount of utilities consumed and the carbon footprint of the building as part of the council’s commitment to become carbon neutral by 2030. In addition to this work a programme of essential maintenance works was also commissioned.

The aspirations gym facility at Newport reopened in March and we have been delighted to welcome both existing and new customers back to the centre. We are pleased to be able to confirm that the new air cooling system within the gym will also be commissioned later this month in advance of the summer.

In the meantime, maintenance work continues on the swimming pool and changing facilities and these facilities will reopen from Monday 25 July 2022 in time for the school summer holidays.

The scheduled work to the pool at Newport has been further impacted by uncontrollable supply chain shortages across the industry affecting delivery times for key materials and mechanical parts. This unavoidable delay has however provided the opportunity to undertake additional works such as redecorating the pool hall and completely replacing the pool hall lighting.

The weekly swimming lesson programme will continue at Short Wood Swimming Pool and for swimmers who have temporarily moved to one of our other pools. Swim4Life members who have chosen to pause their swimming lessons whilst Newport Swimming Pool is closed need take no further action at this time.

We will write out to notify all Swim4Life members prior to the pool reopening in respect of lessons restarting at Newport Swimming Pool.

Whilst we are confident that the works will significantly improve the experience of using the facilities for our customers we apologise for the inconvenience and disruption caused and if you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us at leisure@telford.gov.uk.
