The team from Onehunga War Memorial Pools has been working hard behind the scenes to get the indoor pools reopened after the roof was damaged during a storm a few weeks ago. Contractors have now secured and weather-proofed the damaged section of the roof, and over the past few days the Onehunga team has been working to get the pool back up to the correct temperature and within NZ Pool Standards. Testing this afternoon has shown we're good to go!
The indoor pool, spa and sauna will reopen at 5:15am on Friday, 27 April.
YMCA thanks customers for their patience during this challenging period. Below are some further updates and a reminder of what's happening around the centre.
Group exercise classes
Space for group exercise classes unfortunately remains limited until the weather-damaged group exercise room is up and running again. A booking system will now also apply to pilates and yoga classes. Please make sure you book a class space by contacting the Onehunga YMCA team on 09 634 3748.
Classes will restart at the pools from Monday, 30 April. Check the website for the latest class details, or visit reception for an updated group exercise timetable.
After school care programme
The Onehunga War Memorial Pool after school care programme will be running as normal from Monday 30 April.
Our Term 2 swim school classes will operate as usual. Please contact our swim school team on 09 929 1234 if you still need to arrange a make-up session from Term 1.
Changes to our planned maintenance and refurbishment closure
Our priority over the last few weeks has been to minimise disruptions to our customers, and to get the indoor pool open as soon as possible by avoiding an extended period of closure.
As per previous communications, our initial planned closure for maintenance and refurbishment work was scheduled for Monday 16 April to Sunday 29 April. In order to address the roof damage and avoid an extended closure, YMCA and Auckland Council have decided to postpone the maintenance and refurbishment work until a later date.
Like us, many of you are eagerly anticipating this work. We will continue to keep you updated about future closure dates for the rescheduled maintenance and refurbishment work, and do our best to minimise further disruptions.
YMCA thanks all customer of Onehunga War Memorial Pools for their understanding during the last few weeks. Please contact the centre if you have any questions:
