COVIDSafe Update

To provide a safe environment for our community, changes will be implemented to meet the NSW Government's COVID 19 restrictions at out outdoor pools. Each pool will be affected differently based on the size and type of facility, and we recommend you check in with your local pool once open to see what changes may apply.

As a minimum, changes will include:

  • Maximum capacities applied to each facility, pool and building area
  • Booking systems to manage customer numbers
  • Customer sign in for contract tracing purposes.
  • Additional requirements for group bookings and events

During your visit, we also ask you to please:

  • Not visit our pools if you are unwell or have flu like symptoms
  • Maintain good personal hygiene, including regular hand washing/sanitising
  • Shower and change at home where possible
  • Download and use the COVIDSafe App


As per the adopted 2020/2021 BVSC Fees and Charges, please see updated swimming pool casual entry and season ticket prices.
