It’s finally time for the leisure facilities in Wales to reopen and this is the perfect opportunity for us to introduce you to Swansea Bay Sports Park (SBSP). This is Wales National Pool Swansea and Sports Swansea joining forces to improve the experiences of our members and customers.
So, what’s changed?
Firstly, the entrance to the Singleton Gym has changed so we now ask all people visiting the facilities to enter via the Wales National Pool Swansea entrance. Here you will be greeted by our friendly reception staff who will be there to direct you towards the facilities you have booked.
For your first session back, please arrive a bit earlier than your booked slot as you will need to go to Reception to update your membership photograph. Don’t worry, this will only take a few minutes and then you can get into the pool or head towards the gym. If you’re working out on Bay Campus, please just head to Reception like you would usually do to do the same.
We are asking that people continue to wear a face mask around the facilities, socially distance from others and sanitise/wash your hands regularly. When in the gym, you will also be asked to clean the equipment before and after use – there are cleaning stations dotted around the gym to make this as easy as possible.
Going for a swim? When you arrive for your session, head to Reception to receive your allocated locker and cubicle number. We ask you use the same cubicle before and after using the pool and make sure you shower before getting into the pool. Every other shower has been blocked off to ensure social distancing can be maintained so please only use the showers that have not been blocked off.
There are no changing facilities for either of the gyms currently so please come ready to train (in appropriate clothing and shoes…no Demin or flip flops please!) Ensure you are following the one-way systems in place and train on your own where possible. As mentioned, please use the cleaning equipment provided to wipe the equipment down before and after use. Our team will also be cleaning in between sessions to ensure it’s clean for the next group of people.
Finally, the most exciting change for our members is our new App! We’ve been working hard on producing an easy and accessible app for our members where they can book and manage all sessions. Whether you want to book a swim session, a tennis court or a gym slot, the app allows you do this. All you need to do is search for “Swansea Bay Sports Park” in the App Store or Play Store to download and get booking!
We can’t wait to welcome you back in the coming weeks to all our facilities. Keep an eye out on social media for more frequent updates including opening times, gym classes and Covid-19.
