Following the announcement by the UK Government concerning the reopening of outdoor pools, initial discussions between Wandsworth Council, Places Leisure and the SLSC have commenced with the aim of reopening the outdoor pool at Tooting Bec Lido. If all guidance and safety requirements can be supported, the earliest possible opportunity for any re-opening would not be within the next four weeks.
Pool safety and COVID secure compliance are essential requirements in ensuring that all members of the public are able to have access to the Lido. Establishment of a new booking system, a one-way access system, swimming lane procedures, changing areas, public safety and social distancing are just a few of the immediate challenges that need to be considered and reflected within any revised operational procedures.
We hope to be able to make a further announcement within the next week or so on what progress is made and any potential opening date.
