It had to close the pool on Saturday (13 April) and was due to reopen on Tuesday (16 April) – but this closure has become indefinite.

A spokesman for GLL said: “GLL apologises for the inconvenience to customers caused by the unforeseen closure of Fulwood Leisure Centre’s swimming pools.

“This has been caused by a mechanical fault to the air handling unit. Engineers are currently on site and the team is working hard to get the pool re-opened as soon as possible.


“While Fulwood’s pools are closed, swimmers can use West View swimming pool – a timetable for which can be found on our website or a copy requested at Fulwood Reception.

“We are hoping to have information on timescales for re-opening within the next 48hrs and will update the website as soon as we know more.”

The closure comes after a major refurbishment and work to the pools took place before Christmas.
