BALC open
June 2021

We are excited to be reopening the Health Club and swimming pools you again on Friday 11 June 2021.

BALC will be limited to 50 people in the Centre at any time, so bookings are a must for now.

Changing government restrictions means we can reopen in a limited capacity. This means we can only reopen the Health Club and swimming pools, and spa and steam room with capacity limits, at this stage.

You must register with the Victorian Government app on arrival at the Centre.

Centre passes will be available for $5 per person and will cover both Health Club and swimming sessions. Bookings will be on the hour and sessions will be 55 minutes long. Bookings will open at 12pm on Thursday 10 June.

Bookings must be made online and payment must be made in the Centre on arrival. Bookings can be made 48 hours in advance.

Each person attending the Centre must have their own booking, including children under 5 years and carers.
