Frequently Asked Questions

Enquire

  • What is the difference between Rehab Lanes, Recreational/Leisure Swimming and Lap Lanes?
    Recreational/leisure swimming is for fun and splashing around. There is currently no casual recreational/leisure swimming space available.

    Guests who are swimming laps for exercise or training are recommended to use the lap swimming lanes. Lap swimming Lanes are for constant motion only. To ensure social distancing is observed pool users should not be stopping and talking at the end of the pool

    Rehabilitation (rehab) lanes are wider than the standard sized lap lanes and provide space to do an agreed rehab plan or exercises in the pool. It is not a suitable area for lap swimming or recreational/leisure swimming as many users have limited mobility or are in the care of a provider during their booked time. Rehab swimming times are not to be booked by professional services.
  • I would like to book in as professional service. What sessions can I book in to?
    Professional services are registered businesses that represents the interest of themselves and other individuals.

    Professional services may book into Community Access or Physiotherapy Service Provider sessions if they have been pre-approved to use the Centre. To seek pre-approval please use the enquiry form on the Rehab and Hydro Swimming page.

    Rehab Swimming and Lap Swimming sessions are not to be booked by professional services.

    Professional Services are required to complete a COVID Contact Tracing document per visit prior to attending the Centre. To request this document please use the enquiry form on the Rehab and Hydro Swimming page.
  • Will I have a lane to myself in my rehab swimming or lap swimming session?
    Not at this time. We currently allow up to 2 swimmers per lane and will review this policy in the coming months.
  • Why can I only book for 1 hour?
    Spaces and times are limited for Rehab and Hydro Swimming to ensure everyone gets an equal opportunity to use the pool. Pool time should not exceed 45-50 minutes from the booking start time to allow patrons to get changed and exiting the Centre.
  • Why are lap swimming and rehab times in the Rehab and Hydro Pool restricted to the mornings?
    Lap Swimming and Rehab Swimming times are available as specified to allow many people to access this shared space under the social distancing and venue capacity requirements.
  • Is there a change to the way I enter and exit the pool?
    We continue to evolve with the guidelines from State Government and SA Health. We are working on traffic flows that provide entry and exit points for each of the Centre’s different user groups.

    Our Customer Service team at reception will be happy to explain the process when you arrive, however please be aware that the current time is dynamic and that entry and exit points may change or be different to your normal experience.

    As per government recommendations, we are not offering equipment for shared use until further notice. All users must bring their own equipment. The SA Aquatic Centre cannot store or hold user’s equipment on their behalf.
  • Will I still need to book pool space once memberships resume?
    Yes, until further notice. The limited numbers within the lanes will continue for the foreseeable future. Social distancing requirements and venue capacity restrictions still apply with all users required continue to book their times. This also helps us with contact tracing as required.
