Lane Pool Closure Information Update: 13th March 2019

Richmond Aquatic Centre Lane Pool Closure 25th March to 25th May 2019

We regret to advise our valued pool users that the lane pool will be closed for re-tiling from the 25th of March 2019 until the 25th of May 2019.

This process requires the pool to be completely drained, current tiles to be removed and then replaced. This time frame allows for the essential drying (curing) time for the tiles to be met.

We apologise in advance for the inconvenience this will cause, however this work is required to be done to improve the longevity of the pool.


AQUA TIMETABLE 25th March – 25th May

Please note there are changes to class times and locations.

Aqua 30 & Aqua Relief classes will not run during the school holidays (15th-28th April)

If the above times are unsuitable you have the option to use your current aqua concessions for any group fitness class in the gym. This is a great way to mix up your exercise regime and add some variety in your life

Riverside Pool in Nelson also have a range of Aqua Classes of offer – Their normal class rates will apply. To view the timetable and pricing please visit



All lessons will still run as normal – Please check the board on entrance to the facility each day to see if your class has been moved to the Hydro Pool – some of our baby/pre and school age lessons may be moved to the Hydro at peak times.

Bronze/Silver/Gold will move to the Learn to Swim Pool

Platinum – Will be provided with Dry Land training that incorporates specific exercises to improve swimming performance in addition to general fitness level. This will be in our Fitness Centre at the normal Platinum session times/days.  These will be with experienced and qualified fitness trainers for the normal 1 hour sessions.  An email outlining what is required and information on the training will be sent to parents prior to the 25th March.

Tasman Magic Academy Swimmers have been sent their new training/venue schedule – If you have not received your email please see the Customer Service Team.


With the 25m Lane Pool Closure at various times throughout the day the Wave Pool will become a Multi Purpose Use area providing Lane Swimming, Aqua Jogging Spaces and Free Play areas all at the same time.       

Please ensure you check the Wave Pool schedule prior to your visit so you can ensure that the correct pool/swimming space is available for your requirements.                                                                                             

If you require any assistance with reading the timetable please see the Customer Service Team.



Please note these timetables are valid from the 25th March - 14th April.  New timetables will be issued prior to the school holidays.


These do not have an expiry date so you will still be able to use these when the lane pool re-opens or for swimming in our other pools as per the timetable.


There are lane swimming option in the wave pool as per the timetable - see the above link, however if you choose you may also access Riverside Pool on your Pool Membership. Please note this does not include GYM memberships or concessions. Please also note that Riverside will be experiencing higher demands over our closure – Riverside can be contacted on 03 5463221

Should the current options not suit your lifestyle you can put your membership on hold by contracting Crystal on or 03 543 9755 – Please note memberships that are put on hold will not have access to the facility during this time. You are welcome to pay causally should you choose
