It was great to get a clearer sense of the government's roadmap for easing lockdown on Monday. The announcement suggested that, if things keep going in the right direction and if the data allows, then indoor pools can start to reopen from the 12th April 2021.
We are currently working with your local venues and governing bodies to re-open our pools as soon as we can following this date. As soon as we have an update for you, your local office will be in contact. If you were previously booked on to a photoshoot during lock down, your local office will be in touch to re-schedule. So please hang tight and we will be in touch via email once we have more details about getting back into each of our pools. Your specific details and new term dates will be sent closer to the time and once your pool has agreed to an exact return date (and of course we need to still keep up-to-date with the latest information from the government).
Once again, we’d like to say a huge thank you for your continued loyalty and support. This news will create lots of questions coming into our small teams, so we apologise if we’re a little slower at responding during this time, but we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
We hope you stay safe and well during this time, and we can’t wait to see you back in the pool soon!
Thank you. 💙🧡
For more detailed information for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, please see the official statements below.
For your continued safety outside of the pool, please make sure you are also following official advice on prevention best-practice. Thoroughly washing and sanitising your hands, coughing and sneezing into disposable tissues or sleeves and not touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands aren’t clean.
We will continue to review everything as the situation progresses so please keep an eye on this page or contact your local office for updates.
We are all one big Water Babies family. We’re here to help and support all of our members stay safe and healthy throughout this time.
All the best,
