Swimming fans across the city can once again don their togs, as after a three-month shutdown, the Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre is reopening.
Oasis Programs Supervisor Fiona Claridge said she and the team were delighted to open the doors from Saturday 13 June 2020.
“We love swimming as well, so we understand the community has been missing it as much as we have,” Ms Claridge said.
“We’re looking forward to seeing all our lovely members and visitors who are excited to come back in.”
As NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines are still in place, the Oasis will be operating under new practices.
“The biggest change is that people will need to call ahead and book a swim time – members included,” Ms Claridge said.
“You’ll be able to book one day ahead, or on the day. The reason we’re restricting bookings to only one day ahead is to ensure that as many people get a chance at a swim as possible. We want to keep it fair, given that we’ll only be able to allow in limited numbers to ensure we can adhere to the correct social distancing guidelines.
“We’ll also be encouraging everyone to pay over the phone where possible, to reduce the amount of time you need to spend at the front counter.”
