On Monday 26th September there will be NO EARLY MORNING swim session and we will instead open at midday and close at 6pm which will continue daily until Saturday 8th October. These swimming sessions will be for the main pool only.
Following our boiler failure issues at the beginning of the season we have extended our heated operation by one week and therefore, we shall be turning the boiler off on Friday 30th September. This will enable the pool to cool down ready for the Macmillan All Out Swim event which is taking place on Saturday 1st Oct (morning only – additional 5km swimmers) and Sunday 2nd October (please note there will be restricted swimming on this day with only three lanes available).
We continue with the midday to 6pm swimming sessions until Saturday 8th October. During this week we will be aiming to maintain the pool temperature at 21C (70F). On Sunday 9th October we have our Devil’s Aquathlon and Devil’s 2K Swim races which will take place in the morning. There is still time to enter both of these events at http://www.sandfordparkslido.org.uk/event/the-devils-aquathlon and http://www.sandfordparkslido.org.uk/event/devils-2k-swim.
As an extra thank you for your support to the lido this year we have arranged for an additional swimming session on Sunday 9th October starting at 2pm until 3.30pm. This will be your last opportunity to have a swim this summer.
Following on from the public swimming session we shall be offering a special Dog Swim from 3.30 – 4.30pm. Gates at the lido will close at 5pm. More details of this will follow over the next few weeks.
