Update on Medway Park

Published: Tuesday, 31st January 2023

Update at 5pm on Tuesday, 31 January: statement from Medway Sport.

Unfortunately, all swimming pools at Medway Park sports centre in Gillingham will remain closed tomorrow (Wednesday, 1 February) due to the ongoing temperature issue.

We are contacting schools as well as the parents and carers of children who attend swimming lessons and members who have booked aquatic sessions.

Medway Park continues to experience cooler temperatures and a lack of hot water. A specialist engineer visited the centre today and has advised that we need to replace the centre’s gas supply meter. We are waiting for a new meter and, once delivered, it will installed as quickly and safely as possible.  Once installed, it will take some time to get the temperature of the pools, and the centre, back up to normal levels. We will update our social media channels when the pools are reopened.

The gym remains open and all dry activities and classes continue to run, but customers are advised that it will feel cooler than normal and the showers remain closed.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your continued patience.

Our swimming facilities at Strood and Hoo sports centre remain open as usual. Please check their timetables before travelling to the centres.
