In partnership with Newcastle City Council, we are continuing to carry out several development and refurbishment projects at Better, East End Pool over the next 12 months.

PHASE ONE: FITNESS CHANGING ROOMS AND GROUP CYCLES - COMPLETED
The fitness changing rooms have been refurbished and new Technogym group cycles have been installed.

PHASE TWO: STUDIO POOL REFURBISHMENT - COMPLETED

The studio pool underwent essential maintenance work including refurbishment of the movable floor.  All works are now complete and we are pleased to say the pool has reopened three weeks ahead of schedule.

PHASE THREE: MAIN POOL TEMPORARY CLOSURE

The main pool is currently closed while we carry out further works, which include:

  • Closure of the beach area and toddler pool: These areas are now permanently closed to make way for a new family friendly activity space to be announced soon.  
  • Refurbishing the main pool plant to make it more energy efficient

The main pool is planned to reopen at the end of July; however we will confirm exact dates closer to opening.

A revised swimming pool programme is in place to move swimming sessions to the studio pool and to limit disruption as much as possible. Better swim lessons will continue at their normal times and for other sessions please check the centre timetable before your visit.

Better Swim Only members are reminded that they can also use all other Better swimming pools at West Denton and Gosforth Leisure Centre as part of your membership.

PHASE FOUR: SWIMMING POOL CHANGING ROOMS AND SAUNA REFURBISHMENT

On Monday 18th June, work will begin on refurbishing the swimming pool changing rooms.  There will be some disruption whilst this work is completed in stages, but there will always be changing facilities available.  All lessons and swimming sessions will continue as normal.

 

Better, East End Pool will also be getting a new sauna; works to install this will take place while the main pool is closed.  All changing room works and the new sauna installation are planned to reopen at the end of July alongside the main swimming pool, but we will confirm exact dates closer to opening.
