Fitness fanatics and swimmers can return to the YMCA Narrogin Regional Leisure Centre as the town welcomes its much-anticipated reopening.

Narrogin’s recreation centre partially re-opened its facilities last Monday in accordance with the State Government’s phase two guidelines.

The public now have access to the pool for lap swimming; squash courts, a limited group fitness timetable; and the sports courts for non-contact sport and training.

Centre manager Tia Sandhu said it was good to be back in action.

“It’s great to see our doors reopened for customers to use the indoor pool and attend equipment-free group fitness classes again,” she said.

There is a reduced group fitness timetable for classes that do not use shared equipment, such as aqua aerobics, yoga, boot camp and bodyweight and some seniors classes.

Casual squash bookings of up to two people per court, with a maximum of eight people in the entire squash area, is now permitted.

Pool spaces will be limited based on the number of people using the pool at time of entry.

Bookings can be made by calling 9881 2651.

Patrons are encouraged to bring their own equipment where possible and promptly leave the facility at the end of their session. The gym, creche and swimming lessons remain closed until further notice.

“We have seen quite a few of our regulars and members back with big smiles on their faces using the facility already this week whilst adhering to social distancing and hygiene regulations,” Ms Sandhu said.

“It’s been great to be able to get back to a sense of normality and help the Narrogin community get back on their feet with their fitness and wellbeing journeys.”

The Shire of Narrogin has approved free use of the centre for existing members through phase two. Members will not be charged until phase three, expected in mid-June.

The community is encouraged to visit the YMCA Narrogin Regional Leisure Centre Facebook page for the most up to date information regarding the re-opening.
