Club Races for Saturday, 8th January, and morning training sessions on 4th & 6th January are cancelled.
Due to the long COVID-19 testing queues and inability to access the pool car park, combined with a number of Pool Staff having to isolate causing staffing shortages, Council has reduced the opening hours of Merrylands Swimming Centre for the next 10 days. The pool will only be open from 12pm to 7pm.
This means the pool will not be open on Saturday morning, or for morning training this week.
Afternoon training sessions will proceed as planned. It is expected normal hours will resume on the 10th January.
Swimmers who have already entered for the 8th January will be refunded. As the week progresses, the Competition Committee will review whether any changes will need to be made to the race program.
Update: 4th January
Due to staffing shortages associated with the impacts of COVID-19, Merrylands Swimming Centre will be closed until further notice. Council will reassess the situation in the coming days. Training sessions will be held at Guildford Swimming Centre for the remainder of this week and will start 1 hour later than usual.
