Swimming Pool opening hours

The swimming pool at Seaview Crescent has just reopened and I was told the pool is closed everyday from 1200-1330 so the lifeguards can take a lunch break.

1200 - 1330 is a very popular time for people to go swimming as the sun is on the pool. After 2pm the sun goes and the pool is in the shade. Should it be suggested that a lifeguard be on duty during these popular times and the pool stay open all day?

Yesterday there were three lifeguards at the pool at the same time - surely between them they can rotate lunches.

If you want to swim before 1200 and after 1330 you have to pay twice to swim ($40). It's $160 for a family of four to go swimming twice on a Sunday - this is a crazy price. And closing the pool at the peak sunny hours is ridiculous.

As a new owner I was very upset when I saw this. I was told by recepetion to bring up the issue at the next owners meeting. I will do so.

Hi Richard, firstly welcome you to SVC. My name is Jeff Lam and I am the chairman of the SVC owners committee.

The pool normally opens from May to Oct, but since we have sound financial foundation in SVC, we have discussed and decided to open the pool half a month earlier in April and half a month later in Nov. The current arrangement is not the long-term arrangement from May to Nov, and it enables to have the best cost efficiency which is up to 9 times cheaper than the outdoor CC pool, and it fulfills the government requirements too as the government requires at least 3 lifeguards at the pool at the same time. We thank you for your understanding, and we will discuss further about the opening time between May to Oct to ensure that more residents can enjoy our clubhouse services. Thanks.

Hi Jeff. Thanks for your reply - It would be great if something could be arranged so the pool is open all day with no need to close it at 12:00 - 13:30. But, of course I understand not everything is possible!
