NSC pools to close for nine months - picture

Swimming pools at the NSC will be closed for nine months whilst extensive refurbishment works are carried out.

£4.2 million will be spent updating the competition and leisure pools which are 20 years old.  

The facility will close on August 4th and is set to re-open in May next year.

Education, Sports and Culture Minister Graham Cregeen says: "I welcome this significant investment in one of the Island’s key sports facilities which demonstrates government’s commitment to sport.

"The Programme for Government sets out a number of targets around health and wellbeing: such as increasing the number of people regularly undertaking physical exercise, and increasing healthy life expectancy.

"Access to sports facilities plays a key role in realising these ambitions. 

"The Island has invested considerably in sport over the past 25 years and we continue to reap rewards from this."

A new zero-depth wet play area will be created as part of the revamp – the changing areas will also be fully refurbished.
