The opening of the swimming pools in the City of Ekurhuleni will no longer take place as expected tomorrow, 1 September, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Normally the City’s pools close for the winter season and reopen on the first day of September, to coincide with Spring Day.

The City is committed to creating a healthy and safe swimming and recreational environment for all users.  In this regard, the City will endeavour to ensure that the water quality of all our pools is compliant with the safety standards set by Life Saving SA and the Aquatics regulatory authorities.

The Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture is working around the clock to ensure that the pools will reopen as soon as possible. The exact reopening dates will be communicated in due course.

The City apologises for this unfortunate situation and any inconvenience caused.

Meanwhile, the Boksburg Swimming Pool is available for swimming galas upon special arrangements. For further information in this regard, contact the operations division of the Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture on 011 999 7938.
