Due to essential maintenance works taking place at Better, Morton Leisure Centre, the centre will be closed from Tuesday 22nd October 2019 until Thursday 24th October 2019.

The centre will reopen on Friday 25th October 2019.


Relocation of your child's swim school lessons during the closure

We will be relocating your child's swim school lessons to The Pools Swimming and Health Centre during the closure period. The day and time of your child's lesson will remain the same as will the instructor. Lessons will take place in the 7m tank pool, located alongside the main 25m pool. Please use the changing rooms for the 25m pool, which are located on the ground floor, beside the rear entrance to the centre. There are lockers for belongings in these changing rooms. Lockers require a 50p coin, which is returned after use.
