Kelso Swimming Pool

Overview

Due to a failure with our air handling unit, the Kelso Swimming Pool  is closed on Monday 16 November. 
The Pool will reopen as normal on Tuesday 17 November. 
We apologise for any inconvenience this closure may cause and thank you for your ongoing patience. 

We are excited to welcome you back to our facilities.

Currently we are not taking bookings for anybody under the age of 14 in general lane swimming sessions. We do have Junior Lane Swimming sessions available at all our open swimming pools for children aged 10 to 14 years and Family Swimming Sessions that are open to all ages.

These are only the initial opening programmes. Services will be subject to constant review, responding to demand and any new government regulations whilst constantly ensuring our customer and staff safety as a priority.

We have put new hygiene measures in place in line with COVID 19 regulations, and are staggering the start times of each lane to manage the amount of people in the changing village. Please arrive ‘beach ready’ just a couple of minutes before your session. More information can be found in our FAQ’s.

Please book the lane to suit your ability or session plan

Lane 2 – Fast Lane 

Lane 1 – Slow Lane

These initial open times will be under constant review to cope with demand, any new government regulations and to ensure our members safety.

Before you arrive at a Live Borders facility, you need to:

  • Check your online account is up to date or register a new account. Follow this link for a step by step guide.
  • Book a timeslot via the Live Borders website.
  • Arrive on time. If you arrive early, you’ll need to queue outside and if you arrive late, you won’t be allowed access to the facility.
  • Be changed into your activity clothes and shower at home if possible, as we’re limiting access to showers and changing rooms.
  • Bring your own water bottle, towel and hand sanitiser, if possible.

Our staff will be doing everything they can to keep our leisure centres clean, but there are some measures that we’re asking you to help with…

How we are keeping you safe in our facilities?

Upon entering the leisure centre, you’ll notice a hand washing or hand sanitisation station, which you should use.

Around the facilities, you may see:

  • A one-way system that you should follow at all times
  • COVID-19 safety signs and floor stickers instructing you to keep to a safe distance
  • Sanitisation stations that you should use in between activities and using any equipment

For any gym, swim or fitness class session that you book, you’ll be given a one-hour time slot to ensure that everyone has a chance to visit our facilities. This time slot includes entering the building, conducting your activity and leaving the building.

What safety measure will there be at the swimming pool? 

As changing rooms and showers will be limited, we’re asking everyone who attends a swim session to come ‘beach ready’ with their swimming gear on under their clothes and having showered at home.

Swimming pools will have:

  • No more than 16 swimmers in the pool at any time
  • Double-width lanes so you can keep to a safe distance.
  • Chlorine disinfectant in the water management systems, which complies with the government’s regulations and is proven to disinfect pathogens, including viruses such as COVID-19.
  • No overtaking to ensure a safe distance at all times

What safety measure will there be at fitness classes? 

A hygiene station will be at the entrance of all fitness class studios. Please sanitise your hands as you enter.

Fitness classes will have:

  • Capped attendance, so class-goers can keep to a safe distance at all times
  • No shared equipment
  • A dedicated ‘pod’ where you will work out and enjoy your class
  • Time dedicated to sanitising your hands and wiping down any equipment both before and after use with the cleaning products provided

Exercise mats for classes such as Body Balance will be provided but please ensure you clean them before and after use with the sanitiser and paper towel provided. You can also bring your own mat with you.
