The 50 m swimming and diving pools at the municipal pools remain empty more than two month after the facility was meant to reopen for summer. Read full Polokwane Observer article here.
While Polokwane Observer highlighted the fact that the Polokwane swimming pool still remains closed two months into summer the Polokwane Municipality is doing nothing to communicate on the matter despite a provincial swimming gala being scheduled to be held at the pool in two weeks time.
It has now also come to the attention of Polokwane Observer that international funding was secured through Swimming South Africa (SSA) for the pool to be heated in order to facilitate the development of swimming in the province. Once the pool heating system has been installed the pool will be suitable for use throughout the year.
