The pool at our centre, The Rapids in Romsey is currently closed (since Sunday 14th Dec) and will remain closed until late December for essential renovation work.

The renovation work will mainly focus on the updating of the poolside and nearby toilets to improve standards, however a variety of areas are being refurbished, including:

  • The poolside flooring
  • Two shower areas in the changing rooms
  • The rockery areas will be resurfaced with a more durable AquaBead material.
  • The surround and steps of the jacuzzi will also be replaced.

“We have scheduled the work to be done when it affects the least amount of people and it will be done as quickly as possible. It will significantly improve the facilities in the wet-side toilets and way the poolside looks”

Stephen Harker, Facility Manager at The Rapids.

The Rapids is run by Valley Leisure, a sports trust, on behalf of Test Valley Borough Council. The council has funded the refurbishment of the pool surround.

The rest of The Rapids building, including the gym and toning centre, will be open as usual, although Christmas and New Year opening hours will be in place from the 22nd. Please visit the website to plan your visit, and for more information please call The Rapids on 01794 830333.
