All Council Leisure Centres, pools and gyms will be closed from midday 23 March 2020, until further notice.

This includes:

  • Glenbrook Swim Centre
  • Springwood Aquatic and Fitness Centre
  • Lawson Swim Centre
  • Katoomba Sports and Aquatic Centre
  • Blackheath Pool (already closed for the autumn/winter season) 

This also includes all fitness classes, Learn to Swim classes and squad training.

This is in line with the announcement from the NSW Government, and extended measures to manage the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This is an unfortunate but necessary measure, to ensure the safety of our community and staff.
We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.


We will be suspending all memberships for the duration of the closure. That means you won’t be charged while we’re closed, and your membership will be automatically reinstated once we are able to reopen.
