Glasgow Club Drumchapel Pool
Update October 2023
Glasgow Life is carrying out inspections of buildings from the period when Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) was being used in construction. We are using visual inspections and checking plans to confirm its presence. Drumchapel Pool, which had been closed for refurbishment and been due to reopen in October 2023, has been identified as containing RAAC and will be further assessed by structural engineers to determine any action required. When we know the full extent of the issue in the building we will update users.
We wanted to provide you with an update on the ongoing refurbishment of Drumchapel Pool. Our goal is to create a better swimming experience for everyone, and we have invested £1.2 million in this project since October 2022.
During this exciting project, we discovered additional repairs are needed to prevent future closures. Our contractor is currently working on these repairs, and the reopening is now scheduled for October 2023.
We understand the pool's importance to the local community and appreciate your continued patience while we work on these improvements.
Please remember, you can continue to enjoy swimming at any Glasgow Club pool across the city - they are all included in your membership. We also understand not everyone can travel, so if you feel you won’t receive value for money during this time, you can simply cancel your Direct Debit instruction at the bank (please make sure to do this at least 5 working days before the next payment is due on the 7th of July). Once you are ready to return and take advantage of all the exciting changes, you can easily re-join again.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we work to enhance these facilities.
Guide and assistance dogs are welcome.
