The leisure pool at the NSC will be closed to the public for two days next week to allow for repair works on the closed flume.
One of the two new slides has been shut since December after some concerns were raised that the exit was not always as smooth as it should be. There were at least 10 reports of people being injured on the flume in the month it was open from November to December 2021.
Following an initial investigation by the sub-contractor last month the company that installed the flumes will return to the island on Wednesday to start rectifying the issues. It means the leisure pool and working flume will not be open to the public on Wednesday or Thursday, but all other facilities, including the main swimming pools will be available.
Julie Edge, Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, said: ‘It is a difficult situation which we are trying to resolve as quickly as possible. However, this initial work will not mean we can reopen the closed flume just yet. I understand the situation is unfortunate and apologise for the inconvenience it has caused.’
The leisure pool will be open again on Friday.
