On behalf of the committee of Derby Phoenix Swimming Club
I would like you to know that we share your extreme frustration at the state of service provision currently being experienced at the Council swimming facilities we use, and to let you know that we are doing everything in our power to ensure these are addressed.
Tonight’s emergency closures of the QLC, have only added to pressures on our operations resulting from the closure to the public of the Moorways facility and temporary closure of the Family Pool.
The committee have an emergency meeting tonight, along with Head Coach - Dave Pratt.
We had previously contacted
local pools, on a number of occasions, to ask for more availability (morning sessions, evening sessions on any day) and have sent another request, given the urgency of the pool time required for our swimmers.
Repton, Foremarke, Lonsdale, Burton, 4strokes
As you can imagine, the response is that all the pools have been inundated with requests for pool time.
Once we have a further update we will let you know.
