Our response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Article Updated: 18 July-2020 @16:55

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to create a safe environment since the premises and pool were closed in March due to the Government’s restrictions. Should you have any concerns or questions regarding our response to COVID-19 please contact committee@sasac.co.uk

We are delighted to report the pool reopens from Monday 20th July but we made some changes to how we do things and everyone will have a part to play in keeping our club safe and help ensure their safety and that of our other members.

Before arriving at the club everyone must have read and agreed to follow the new COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Procedures and the updated Pool Safety Operating Procedures

You are no longer able to simply turn up to swim as we are using an on-line booking system to control the number of people on the premises and in the pool to ensure social distancing. Click here for more details.

We have filmed some short video guides showing how to use the club with our new procedures in place.
