Pool to remain closed while repair work takes place

Kettering Swimming Pool is set to remain closed in the coming weeks while repair work takes place, following an incident on Tuesday 20 June when a small piece of ceiling panelling fell into the pool. No-one was in the pool at the time and no-one was injured. 

Kettering Borough Council has completed an investigation into the cause and a specialist contractor has been commissioned to carry out the necessary repair work to ensure that the facility is safe to use.  While the pool is temporarily closed the Council will be taking the opportunity to improve the lighting and ceiling in the pool hall as well as a number of other minor improvements. The programme of works will start on the 10th July, lasting approximately 4 to 5 weeks, with the pool scheduled to re-open on the 21st August.

Please note that only the swimming pool is affected by the temporary closure.  The gym remains open for use.

Kettering Borough Council is sorry for the inconvenience caused, however safety of the service’s users is of paramount importance.
