Fermanagh Lakeland Forum swimming pool to reopen

28th August 2020

Fermanagh Lakeland Forum swimming pool will reopen to the public on Monday 31 August 2020.

The reopening of the swimming pool is the latest part of a phased return of services at the leisure centre following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions.

The swimming pool will reopen in accordance with guidance from Swim Ireland and the Royal Lifesaving Society to ensure the visitor experience is as safe and enjoyable as possible.

Booking is essential with swim sessions available to book online at leisure.fermanaghomagh.com or by contacting Fermanagh Lakeland Forum directly on 028 6632 4121 up to 24 hours in advance.

Swimmers should come to the pool ‘beach ready’ with their swimming costume under their clothes with showers available for people to rinse after their swim.

Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Chris Smyth, said:

“I am delighted that the swimming pool at the Lakeland Forum is the latest leisure service to reopen following the easing of lockdown restrictions. Swimming has great health benefits for all ages and abilities.

Every effort has been made to ensure that our leisure facilities operate safely with a number of additional measures put in place at the Forum for the wellbeing of everyone.

I would like to thank our residents for their continued patience as we worked to ensure the safe reopening of the Lakeland Forum pool to the public. The team at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum look forward to welcoming swimmers through their doors once again from Monday.”

A number of additional measures have been put in place at the Lakeland Forum since its reopening in July including new signage, an enhanced online booking system, hand sanitising stations and a one-way system.

Weekend opening at the Forum returns from Saturday 29 August 2020 while the fitness suite will reopen at the earlier time of 7am from Tuesday 1 September 2020.

A new autumn programme of fitness classes will launch on Monday 7 September.

The running track and football pitches are available to hire to affiliated clubs.

All activities at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum must be booked in advance online or by contacting the Forum directly.
