Leisure centres reopening Friday 18 June

Thursday 17 June 2021

In line with further easing of Victorian Government restrictions across Melbourne, we’ll be returning some of our services from 6am Friday 18 June. 

What will be open? 

  • Our main pools, gym and group exercise studios at all centres  
  • Change rooms, showers and drinking fountains at all centres   

Do I need to book? 

A strict capacity limit of 50 applies across each indoor facility, including gyms and pools, therefore bookings will be required for all visits. The only exception to bookings is for swimming at Fitzroy Swimming Pool as the capacity for outdoor venues is larger.  

Group exercise classes will have a maximum capacity limit of 10 people, with the exception of 20 swimmers for SwimFit at Fitzroy. We will have a modified group exercise timetable which you can view and book online

You must wear a mask indoors at all times unless you’re swimming or strenuously exercising and when you arrive, you’ll need to scan in via the QR code at reception. 

What wont be available? 

  • Spa 
  • Sauna 
  • Steam 
  • Richmond toddler pool 
  • Swimming lessons 
  • Personal training 
  • Gym appointments and Evolt scans 
  • Small Group Training sessions 

What’s happening with my membership or visit pass? 

Memberships will remain paused and interim member only casual rates have been introduced for golf, swim, gym and group exercise sessions. 

If you are a visit pass holder, you can now use your visit pass. 

What’s happening with swimming lessons?  

Swimming lessons for the remainder of Term 2 will be cancelled.  

Credits will be placed on learn to swim student accounts for lessons that have been missed due to our venue closures and cancellation of classes for the remainder of the term. 

If you will not be returning to lessons in Term 3 and are seeking a refund for lessons missed as a result of the closure; please email us at yarraleisure@yarracity.vic.gov.au
