To Club Members Print E-mail

The pool is guaranteed to be open during January for swimming, weekdays from 2.30 pm - 6.00 pm when the temperature is above 25 degrees with club lifeguards, and on weekends from 1.00 pm - 6 pm with qualified club members on duty subject to patrol captains instructions.

Opening hours after these times are manned voluntarily by suitably qualified BM club members.

Do you want to keep the pool open longer? Once the water quality has been checked by a pool attendant/lifeguard the pool must be supervised by a bronze medallion holder with an ART (advanced rescucitation techniques) award holder on standby.  If you are tired of having to leave the pool because there are no qualified members available, consider getting your bronze medallion. Next course is starting 11th January - see award training /course bookings section of this website or enroll by emailing the club.

The Fence

Special thanks to Michael Rourke for being the Master builder, also general hands, Doug Wright and Gerry Schalkwijk; hole diggers Chris B, Nick G, Jason M, Blake KS and anyone else who helped with our fence.

Special thanks to Greg Wilson and Grant Botica for organising the pump refurbishment and Casey who assisted with the mechanical know-how. Also Rhys for plumbing work on the kiosk and solar pump and Will Boyd for the chemical brew to set up the pool for swimming.

Club members, if you want to learn about managing pool water quality this is a good place to learn.  We are going to run a course on pool management in the next few weeks subject to interest. The upside is pool access. Please contact the club via email expressing interest, or contact Will Boyd  via  the ' Award Training' section in the main menu.

Please note the pool is for current club members. We welcome new members, refer to the membership page in the main menu.
