MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION & SWIMMING POOL RULES

 

2014 – 2015 Season

Queries to Carlyn Stewart (Secretary) 03 206 4373

The operation of Wyndham District Community Pool out of school hours is under the control of Wyndham District Community Pool Inc. The following rules are to ensure that the pool is used sensibly and enjoyed by all.

The adult signing the agreement is deemed to be a member of Wyndham District Community Pool Inc. This membership entitles the member to hold a pool entry tag, attend Society meetings and contribute to the community operation of the pool. The member will be held responsible for the actions of any people to whom they grant admittance and any abuse of these rules will be followed up and may lead to individual(s) being banned from the complex and/or forfeiture of membership and entry tag. If this occurs there will be no refund of any fees already paid.

MEMBERSHIP TO THE POOL

  • Community members may apply in person at Menzies College Office for a Society subscription, or by contacting Carlyn Stewart. A pool entry tag will be issued on receipt of the appropriate payment. All prices include a $10 bond, refundable when the tag is returned.

Full season                                                         $90

Holiday (15 Dec – 30 Jan)                                    $50

(this can be extended to the end of the season for a further $20)

Half season (2 Feb to end of season)                     $65

  • Applicants must be at least 18 years of age to subscribe for a membership.
  • This is a family membership, i.e. your household only. Joint membership between two or more households is not permitted.
  • Members should be aware that the electronic door system monitors the usage of each entry tag. Should a tag be lost then the member should immediately contact Carlyn Stewart to have that tag deactivated and to discuss issue of a new tag. A loss of entry tag during the season will incur an additional cost of $20 to replace and set up the tag.
  • Members have the option to keep their entry tag for each consecutive season (tags are deactivated at the end of the season and reactivated at the start of the next season once payment for a new membership subscription has been made.)
  • Members wishing to return their entry tag should contact Carlyn Stewart to have the bond repayment made.

POOL RULES

  • Wyndham District Community Pool Inc. members are welcome to invite guests for a swim but are held responsible for ensuring these guests and other users under their membership comply with the rules below and those of the Society.
