Maybole Swimming Pool to Close, Reopening in Maybole Community Campus with Exciting Upgrades

NEWS UPDATED

After serving the community for nearly five decades, Maybole Swimming Pool will close its doors for the final time at 10pm on Tuesday 19 December.

However, it's great news for residents as the pool will reopen within the newly constructed Maybole Community Campus on Thursday 4 January, with an array of exciting upgrades and expanded facilities.  

Originally opened in 1975, Maybole Swimming Pool has been a cherished part of the community, providing a 25m x 4 lane pool and changing rooms.

To celebrate the move, events are being held on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 December between the opening hours of 7am until 10pm. Activities include coffee mornings, free of charge access to swimming to allow everyone to take a final dip in the historic pool, and fun activities for children and young people on both evenings.

The reopening of the swimming pool within the newly constructed Maybole Community Campus will take place on Thursday 4 January 2024. The new facility boasts a 25m x 4 lane swimming pool, a changing village, a community meeting room, a fitness suite and sports halls. 

Over the first few days, the new 'Maybole Leisure Club' will host fun for all the family with taster sessions for fitness classes and gym inductions, fun sessions, and tours of the brand new facility. From Monday 8 January 2024, the standard programme will be introduced which will cater to a wide range of interests and age groups.

Councillor Brian Connolly, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure said: "The closure of Maybole Swimming Pool may mark the end of an era, but it also paves the way for an exciting new chapter for our community. The reopening of the pool within Maybole Community Campus, with its upgraded facilities, will provide a modern and inclusive space for residents of all ages to enjoy. I would encourage everyone in the area to attend both events."

Councillor Alec Clark, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Tourism, Culture and Rural Affairs said: "We're inviting the community to join us to celebrate the legacy of the old pool and bid it farewell. It may seem bittersweet, but the new campus will provide an array of exciting activities and amenities for the local community to enjoy, and it's also great news as it will help to attract new visitors to Maybole and the surrounding area too."

Councillor Stephen Ferry, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Education said: "The reopening of the pool within Maybole Community Campus is an exciting move - I know school pupils are already benefitting massively from the enhanced facilities on the campus. The pool and fitness areas are yet another benefit and reinforce our commitment to provide first class learning environments for all of our pupils."
