Current Disruptions

Important Advice – UQ Sport Aquatic Centre Maintenance Program

(UPDATED: 3pm, Friday 18 September 2020)

The University of Queensland is currently undertaking a program of essential maintenance works to the 50m Pool, and roof structure at the UQ Sport Aquatic Centre.

The underside of the roof structure across several buildings is being replaced and upgraded as part of the works, which we expect to continue through to mid-November 2020.

Necessary repairs to the 50m Pool remain ongoing. From Friday, 18 September, the pool will be emptied to allow for work to be carried out on the expansion joints in the base of the Pool, and to refurbish the balance tank. Updates on when the 50m Pool will reopen will be published on this page.

To minimise disruption for our customers and members during this period, the repair works are being staged, however several areas have had to be closed or relocated for all or part of the works program.

Please read through the details below about the temporary in-venue changes.

From Monday, 7 September 2020, customers will be required to Enter and Exit the Aquatic Centre via the side gate that leads to the P10 parking bay for the duration of the maintenance works.

All change rooms at the Aquatic Centre, including the unisex and family change rooms, are closed for the duration of the maintenance works.

Customers are encouraged to arrive ready to swim and leave immediately after their swim session, as per our current UQ Sport COVIDSafe guidelines.

Two (2) ambulant, portable toilets will be available throughout the works program at the northern end of the 25m pool. Please do not use these as changing areas.

The change rooms at the UQ Sport Fitness Centre on Union Road will be available to Aquatic Centre customers throughout the works period. Please remember to sign-in at the Fitness Centre, using the QR Code or manual sign-in sheet, and advise the reception staff as a courtesy.

The Learn-to-Swim Program Pool will be closed for three to four weeks during the maintenance works. UQ Sport will hold lesson days and times for all customers impacted by the works and credit all lessons affected by the closure.

Further details about closure dates and details will be sent separately to all UQ Sport Swim School customers.

Access to the 25m Pool will not be disrupted throughout the maintenance works. Swimmers can continue to access the 25m Pool for Swim Squads and Lap Swimming. Entry and Exit will be via the side gate that leads to the P10 parking bay.

The 50m Pool remains closed for necessary repairs. From Friday, 18 September, work will be carried out to remove and reinstall expansion joints in the base of the Pool, and refurbish the balance tank. This work will require the 50m Pool to be emptied.

The Reception, Administration Office and First Aid Room areas will all be relocated for the duration of the maintenance work to the building just inside the side gate that leads to the P10 parking bay.

While all efforts will be made to minimise disruption for Aquatic Centre customers throughout the maintenance period, we appreciate that some customers may want to suspend their Membership during this period. Suspensions are available as per the UQ Sport Memberships Terms and Conditions.

We appreciate this is a further disruption to our operations following the challenging events of 2020, and appreciate your ongoing patience and support.

Please keep an eye on this page for any updates throughout the works program or contact the Aquatic Centre.
