Reopening of Musselburgh & North Berwick Swimming Pools 

11th May 2021

BOTH POOLS TO REOPEN FRIDAY 14th MAY WITH MAX DEPTH OF 1.6m

We would like to express our sincere thanks for our customers' patience and understanding regarding the reopening of the swimming pools at Musselburgh & North Berwick. 

Both pools were fitted with brand new booms and floating floors at the end of 2020.   Work continued on the pool upgrades during lockdown, albeit at a much more restrictive pace due to Covid restrictions.  

The delay in reopening was due to significant snagging and safety concerns.  We did not want to put any of our customers at any potential risk.   We fully appreciate the delay caused considerable frustration and we too were just as eager to open these facilities. 

Further work on the booms is still required to make them fully operational.  Meantime, the floating floors have been secured at a depth of 1.6 metres and we can now reopen the pools for public swimming.   Please note, at this depth, diving is not permitted and aqua classes / swimming lessons will take place from the shallow end of the pool.

Unfortunately a further period of closure, at some future date, will be necessary to make the floors and boom fully functional.  Engineers are working up their plans and ordering the necessary materials to complete this work along with organising specialist sub-contractors.  We will keep all our customers updated as and when we have further details of this work.

Participants in swimming lessons have been contacted regarding the resumption of lessons from Friday 14th May.  Please check your emails.  If you have any queries about swimming lessons please contact: swimming@enjoyleisure.com.

POOL BOOKINGS

Bookings for Public Swim Sessions, Lane Swim Sessions, Kids Fun Activities & AquaFit classes will open on Thursday 13th May at 9am.

Please call 01620 820730 for more details.

Fitness Classes are Back in Centre!

11th May 2021

Following the Scottish Government’s announcement (Tues 11th May) we’re delighted to confirm our in Centre fitness class programme will be returning as of Monday 17th May.  

Please click here for the Fitness Class Timetable PDF   All classes are available to book online or by calling the Sports Centres.

Bill Axon, enjoyleisure Chief Executive comments:

“Tuesday’s Scottish Government announcement confirming a move to Level 2 from Monday 17th May, is brilliant news for our many customers who attend coached classes and is greatly welcomed by everyone at enjoyleisure.  The resumption of group exercise; albeit socially distanced, is a massive boost to our customers and coaches alike; who like many others have been furloughed since Boxing Day.  

enjoy’s fitness coaches are eager to return, and we can’t wait to have our halls and studios buzzing with excitement as adults of all ages return for their endorphin releasing boost!   The benefits of group exercise go way beyond the physical elements too.  enjoyleisure’s fitness classes are social affairs.   Friendships are created out of shared interests, motivation levels are enhanced by engaging instructors.  For many, it’s an opportunity for quality “me time”; to energise, relax or de-stress.  For some people it’s an opportunity for ‘real life’ contact (as opposed to virtual) with other people.  It’s important, and maybe even more so with it being Mental Health Awareness week, to recognise the positive social, mental and wellbeing aspects that come from ‘enjoying’ being part of group fitness activities.  It’s a win, win for everyone!”

Continuation of Zoom Classes

Thank you to everyone who completed our Zoom Fitness survey, following your feedback we are delighted to continue to deliver a number of classes over zoom from Monday 17th May onwards – see timetable for more details.   

Going forward we will be monitoring all fitness classes on a regular basis and will be modifying and adapting the timetable in line with customer demand.
