SPS Closed

Due to the Coronavirus threat and the PM's announcement on Sunday the 22nd of March, Sue Pryor Swimming will be closed from 3pm on Monday the 23rd of March until further notice.

To our Swim School Family,

It is with sadness that we notify you, Sue Pryor Swimming will be closing for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus threat. Our last swimming lessons for Term 1 2020 will be Monday morning on the 23rd March 2020 and we will be officially closed from 3pm.

We were considering staying open for laps, rehab, aqua and hydrotherapy but have now decided to cancel all operations. Unfortunately we will not be able to cover the costs of running (heating, treating, etc.) without our swimming lessons.

This morning we waited to send out any communication as we wanted to hear from our industry governing bodies what their thoughts were and the information that came back was mixed. Due to the risk that this poses to so many vulnerable people in both our swimming family and beyond we have made the decision to close for now.

We do plan to re-open when it is deemed safe, so here is what you need to know:

  • Swimming Lessons: You will receive a credit for the number of lessons remaining in the term.
    • Monday Afternoon = 3 lessons
    • Every other day = 2 lessons
  • Voucher swims will remain available until the end of the year.
  • Lap & Rehab Swimming
    • You will receive a credit on your account for the last week of March and for April if you have already paid for it.
    • Pre-paid cards will remain valid for the number of sessions.
  • When we re-open we will be in touch with each family, checking if you are ready to return and what day/time you are interested in.
  • We will try to keep the timetable similar although cannot guarantee it. Unfortunately we will not know which staff are able to return and if we will be able to open for the same days/time or not.


Please practice as much as possible with the little ones. One of the reasons we wanted to stay open is for the little ones – they may forget their skills and have a decrease in confidence. Please keep cueing in the bath, pouring water over their head, for the toddlers they can be a crocodile in the bath and ask them to put their face in. Your 3-5 year olds can float on their front with their face in and float on their back in the bath.


A huge thank you to everyone for your understanding and patience during this time. Please stay well.



Sue Pryor (Owner) & Tabitha Lewis (Manager)
