Reopening information


We are delighted to announce that from 17th August we will be starting our reopening.  More details will follow soon.  Please email if you have any questions.

COVID-19 Update


As we continue to follow the Government lockdown guidelines we are looking forward to when we welcome you back.  After only re opening as a local charity in September 2019 following 4 years of closure it is going to be a financially difficult time for us but we are working hard behind the scenes to make sure we can come through this.  When we know the dates we will re open we will contact you where possible.  In the mean time, visit our Facebook page for up to date information.


To all our loved and valued customers

Following the latest update regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our building from Friday 20th March at 3pm. After all the hard work over the last few years to get the Centre reopened the health and wellbeing of all our customers is our absolute priority. We are committed to ensuring that we reduce the risk of Coronavirus for all our customers to an absolute minimum.

Some important information for customers:
All memberships and swimming lesson payments will be frozen, so members will be able to resume as normal when we re-open.

Keeping fit & active remains important for general health & wellbeing and is the best way to build resilience to viruses. We are working to provide our customers with ideas and solutions to maintain activity levels in the home and we will keep in touch with you.

We are determined to make sure that Elswick Pool and Gym is sustainable for the future and keep it at the heart of the community.

But as an independent community-led business we face a massive challenge and are going to need your help to help us. We want to ‘Protect your Pool’ in the months ahead.

We appreciate money will be tight for many people in these uncertain times, but if you are in a position to help us, please do.

We will be starting various fundraising activities soon.

Thank you again for your understanding and ongoing support during these challenging and unprecedented times.
