Midsomer Norton refurbishment

Midsomer Norton Sports Centre upgrade works

Midsomer Norton Sports Centre will be undergoing significant plant room upgrade works from mid March 2018.  These works include the complete overhaul of the centre’s air handling system and complete replacement of boilers which will result in the following outcomes

1). Consistent shower temperature
2). Consistent pool temperature (30 degrees)
3). Consistent pool hall air temperature (30 – 31 degrees)
4). Consistent changing room temperature (24 – 25 degrees)

The above demonstrates our commitment, as a not-for-profit charitable organisation, to improving the facilities we manage for the benefit of local people. 100% of any surpluses made are reinvested in our facilities, activities and staff. This and future developments and improvements are only possible with our customers continued support.

We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during these essential upgrade works as there will be some disruption between April – May 2018.  This page will be updated accordingly once specific dates are known. This will include disruption to showers, pool and changing room temperatures but will be limited to no more than 7 – 10 days during this period. We may have to close the pool if pool temperatures drop below 27 degrees however every effort will be made to keep any closures to a minimum.

We aim to keep disruption to a minimum throughout and would like to thank all our customers in advance for their understanding and patience during these essential works.

The centre will remain open and will continue to operate as normal unless otherwise advertised.

UPDATE – 20th March

The existing air handling system has now been switched off as it needs to be dismantled and removed ready for the installation of the new system. This could result in a humid environment with variable air temperatures affecting the pool and changing rooms in particular.

Furthermore, our large boiler has been turned off for removal and we are now running from two smaller boilers until the new system is installed. This could affect the pool but more likely the shower temperatures for the next few weeks.

There are two showers located on poolside that are fed from a separate boiler which will provide warmer showers if required.
