Temporary closure of main pool at Bilston

Published: 13 October 2021

We are extremely disappointed to inform you that as a result of a second smashed glass bottle on poolside during a club training session, the main pool at WV Active Bilston - Bert Williams is closed until further notice.  

The pool is currently being drained to ensure all glass shards are removed and we are aiming to reopen it by Monday 25 October. A further update will be provided to confirm the reopening date next week. 

Following the previous incident in 2019, we sought assurances the club would do everything possible to ensure their members did not bring glass bottles to poolside due to the risk of this happening and the costly disruption it causes for customers

We are currently working with the club involved to create a solution to ensure this does not happen again. We understand the frustration of our customers and apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Bilston studio pool and Central availability

Whilst the main pool is closed, a revised timetable with extra public swim sessions is in place for the studio pool. Please visit the timetable page of our website to access this.
