What's On Blog / We are REOPENING! 

Published by ABC Pool : 31-08-2020




Attention Valuable Customers, 

We’re excited to be entering the new season at Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool.  

We have been working exceedingly hard with the City of Sydney to develop a framework of operating protocols detailed below. You can be assured that the measures we put in place will conform to the standards agreed with NSW government and which are being steered by eminent medical professionals and virologists. 


Reopening Plan 

We have a team of highly experienced leisure and safety professionals who are putting in place the necessary measures to ensure you, your friends and family are safe when you return. 

Our Six Element Plan 

  1. We will ensure that our Staff are safe and ready to welcome you, and they will have received the necessary Training in some new ways of working.
  2. We will have Re-Commissioned our facilities so that technically and environmentally they are ready to receive you.
  3. We will have ensured that our Supply Chain is re-established and capable of meeting new demands.
  4. We will have put in place new and heightened Safety and Hygiene protocols.
  5. Our Marketing and Proposition element will ensure that you are kept fully informed of the necessary changes we have to make
  6. We will have re-purposed some of our facilities to more easily apply social distancing, such as:


Changes to Opening Hours 

Please see below our operating hours for the various facilities offered. Please note the maximum capacity allowed for each pool. Once capacity has been reached in each section of the facilities a one in – one out policy will be adopted.

  • 7:00am – 7:00pm Saturday and Sunday 

Maximum capacity: 40 patrons* (*5 per 50m lane) and 30 patrons in the Program Pool.  

Due to restrictions we will not be permitting patrons to lounge or sunbathe on pool deck, entrance to the facilities will be for the use of the pool only.

Direct Debit Resumption 

All fortnightly direct debits will resume from the 4th of September 

In recognition of the reduced service levels The City of Sydney has elected to delay all price increases until 1 October 2020.

Further Changes to Expect 

COVID Check In 

All patrons (including children) must check in and have their temperature checked before entering the facilities, for contact tracing purposes, through the completion of a questionnaire. You will receive an email once the questionnaire has been completed and this must be shown to our staff before you are granted entry. 

Please allow yourself more time to complete the necessary control measures. 


Changing Rooms 

They will be available but we ask that you still try and limit your time in the centre and follow the 4 square metre regulation within the change room areas. 



Lockers will be available however, please ensure that you practice social distancing guidelines whilst using the lockers. 


Water Fountains 

Will be unavailable. Please ensure you bring a full bottle of water with you upon each visit. 


Sanitisation Stations 

Have been placed throughout the centre for you to use. 


Cashless Transactions 

We are CASHLESS and will require all payments to be made via EFTPOS until further notice. 


We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Please be assured of our ongoing commitment to you and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to these facilities.
