Tender awarded for Terry Tyzack internal refurbishment works

17 September 2021

The City of Stirling is commencing upgrades to Stirling Leisure Centres – Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre, with stage one to refurbish the internal pool space recently awarded to AE Hoskins Building Services.

The work involves retiling the internal pool concourse and reception area, changerooms and spa area as well as LED lighting improvements. Starting on Monday 20 September, the project is the first major refurbishment of the facility since it opened in 2001, and is expected to be completed by March 2022.

During this period, the indoor 25m pool, leisure pool, indoor change facilities, spa and sauna will be temporarily closed, and customers will need to use a new temporary entry for outdoor pool and change room access, with a temporary reception counter provided.

The gym and group fitness areas will remain open through their usual entry, and the outdoor pools and creche will remain open through a modified entry. Change facilities will be available utilising the existing outdoor pool changerooms, and opening hours will remain unchanged.

All Learn to Swim classes will continue in the Terry Tyzack Outdoor pools, with the exception of ‘Aqua Babies’ classes which will be available from Leisurepark Balga. Alternative classes are also available at Scarborough Beach Pool commencing Monday 11 October.

All Terry Tyzack members who remain as active members throughout the closure will receive complimentary access to pool facilities at Stirling Leisure Centres – Leisurepark Balga and Scarborough Beach Pool including aqua fitness throughout the refurbishment, and access to those facilities will automatically be provided via current customer membership cards.

Temporary entry arrangements will prevent the Toddler Gym program from operating during the refurbishment. Toddler gym programs are available at Stirling Leisure Centres – Hamersley Recreation Centre and Scarborough Leisure Centre.

Following completion of the internal refurbishment works, the City will then focus on upgrading the outdoor pools and plant. The outdoor pool and plant project is included in the City’s 2020/21 budget, and will include a new state of the art L-shaped 50m pool; a plant room upgrade; submersible swim wall; an accessible ramp; water polo features and landscaping with new LED lighting.

Mayor Mark Irwin said the outdoor pool refurbishment – the second stage of works – will include six additional lanes incorporating the dive pool into a 14-lane, L-shaped pool with construction due to start in 2022.

“Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre is conveniently located in Inglewood and offers a 500m2 gym with cardio, strength and free weights equipment; more than 90 group fitness classes per week; a sauna and spa; a heated 25m indoor leisure pool; and a heated 50m outdoor pool,” he said.

“The new internal refurbishments will revitalise the offering at our facility and importantly to cater for the changing needs of the Stirling community.”

The City of Stirling has seven leisure venues that are open all year round and offer a range of health, fitness and sporting activities. Our centres host fully equipped gyms, indoor sports courts, group fitness classes, venue hire, a public golf course and indoor activity programs open for all ages.
