The Plan – Opening with Restrictions
Opening: Saturday 16th May 2020
At this stage we are only allowed 10 visitors to the facility at any one time. To cater for this we will be implementing a hourly turn over to allow maximum availability to patrons.
You are given 2 options:
1. Pre-booking via text to Aqua Stars work mobile
Details require: Name and preferred time
💢 To avoid an influx of text to our personal mobiles, only text the mobile number above
💢 At this stage, we will only be taking 1 day in advance.
💢 We will hold this spot for 5 minutes passed the hour, then give to other patrons waiting entry (we can not afford to hold spots for no-shows)
2. Try your luck
Rock up on the hour
First there first in.
Regardless of your method of entry or the time you arrive, we will be clearing the facility at 5 minutes to the hour so we can clean for next patrons. Our recommendation is that you come ready to swim with something warm to wear home to shower/dress. You cannot shower at the facility so shower at home before and after.
These are unprecedented times so we will continue to develop this process based on experience and feedback. We thank you for your support and understanding as we try to keep our spirits high, as we navigate these challenging times.
All patrons entering the facility will need to pay entry, as you will be taking 1 of the 10 spots.
60+ $2 – must display senior card

Roller doors will be closed on pool deck during busy times and staff will be on pool deck wearing Lifeguard uniform.
