The State Government confirmed the $8.7m election pledge for the upgrades of the Thebarton Aquatic Centre (TAC). This is a welcome and exciting refurbishment for the Thebarton Aquatic Centre.

Recently, a feasibility study was conducted at TAC which confirmed the scope of work for the refurbishment.

We have been advised by the South Australian Government that a start date has now been confirmed for this refurbishment work and it will be necessary to close TAC for a period of time for this essential work.

This communication is to formally advise you that Thebarton Aquatic Centre will close for refurbishment on Saturday, 30th September 2023 for a period of approx. 10 months until mid-2024. The final day of trading a TAC will be Friday 29th September 2023.

It is our intention that the pool and swim school will operate as usual until the closure date, and we will keep you updated by email and social media channels.

Whilst this is very exciting news, we do understand and realise that these changes may cause some inconvenience for you. Please get in touch to understand the alternative options available during the closure period.
