Stanhope Open Air Swimming Pool
Due to the changing government guidance, the Trustees confirm that Stanhope Swimming Pool will not be opening this summer. We know this will be a disappointment.At very short notice the government has now allowed outdoor pools to reopen. It takes up to 6 weeks to prepare, fill and heat the pool safely for opening. With the lack of guidance until recently, it was not possible to prepare to open and now having looked at current guidance for being COVID-19 safe in a swimming pool setting, it is not possible to quickly implement the measures required to keep customers and staff safe. Consequently, the trustees have decided to concentrate on being ready to open on time in 2021 and look forward to seeing you then. We are taking this chance to do essential maintenance on the pool plant room.Outside the pandemic, we are very aware that we have too few volunteers for both practical and organisational roles. If you are willing to help support our charity in this way please contact info@stanhopepool.co.uk.Without volunteers, there is no future for Stanhope Pool. ... See MoreSee Less

With the continuing uncertainty surrounding COVID19 and when swimming pools will be able to reopen, the committee has decided that it would be best for us to not open for this season. It would take us 6 weeks to get the pool to a point where we were able to open to the public and as the summer presses on with no confirmation when we would be able to open we are slowly running out of time. We will be taking this time to perform essential maintenance to the facility and look forward to seeing you all next summer. ... See MoreSee Less

Due to the current uncertainty regarding Covid19, we are unable to open for May half-term. We will be posting updates as and when we know more based on government guidance. We are incredibly sorry to have to make this decision but the pool takes 6 weeks to prepare for the upcoming season, this means our process would start now and, for obvious reasons, that is currently impossible. ...
