Christchurch City Council reopens more of its sport and recreation facilities

Christchurch City Council reopens more of its sport and recreation facilities
June 2, 2020

Christchurch City Council-owned sport and recreation centres are opening their spas, hydrotherapy pools and hydroslides and have advised no booking is required.

Pools and fitness centres can also be accessed without a booking outside of class times.

Bookings are only required for group fitness classes, aqua classes and Tumbletimes sessions.

Christchurch City Council Head of Recreation, Sports and Events, Nigel Cox notes “when we first moved into COVID-19 Alert Level 2 we introduced a booking system for our pools and fitness centres to carefully manage any queuing but over the past week it has become clear that we can maintain the physical distancing requirements without the need for a booking system.

“We have opened our spa pools, hydrotherapy pools and hydroslides, and will be reviewing the sauna and steam rooms by the end of this week. It is almost business as usual at our facilities, although we are, of course, still adhering to the physical distancing and contact tracing requirements that apply under Alert Level 2.

“We also have rigorous cleaning protocols in place to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

“It’s been great to see people enjoying our facilities again and we’re looking forward to welcoming more people back in the coming weeks.’’
