COVID-19 has put a spanner in the works for many kiwi as we adjust to our new normal, the opening of Foxton Pool was no different. But after a mammoth effort by the aquatics team, the pool will open this Sunday, 26 September.
With safety a priority, the pool will operate with a reduced timetable to ensure COVID-19 guidelines are met and both aquatics staff and the community are kept safe. Swim School Lessons and regular bookings will run as normal.
Fitness classes will start on the week beginning Monday 27 September. The timetable will be changed to fit the reduced opening hours.
Aquatics Manager - Patrick Blackman says “We know how much our community loves Foxton Pool and were due to open the pool on 1 September.

The team is excited to start the season and catch up with all of their regulars.
Opening hours are as follows:
