The leisure pool at Wavelengths in Deptford is to close in September for refurbishment work and will reopen in January 2013. Staff confirmed that the rest of the building will remain open during this time.

Thanks to Nick and Adam on Twitter.

That's a bit of bugger, a really great pool. When's the new pool in Lewisham supposed to be ready?

You could come for a swim in Forest Hill. The pool is scheduled to be open in a few weeks time.

Is there a good childen's pool at Forest Hill pool? The sloping one at Deptford is great for toddlers too young to swim.

Bad timing to do this during school holidays, at a time when the sun has suddenly arrived.

Looking forward to taking a dip at the new Forest Hill baths though.

@Robert - it closes in September, when the school holidays are over.

That's really useful to know, thank you! I was going to do (another) front crawl course in the autumn & might think again if there's not a pool I can get to easily pre-work or at lunchtimes.

I hope the refurb sorts out some of the ongoing problems which featured the last time I used it regularly. It has the potential to be a great gym too, using the old library space.

(oops - posted before I read it properly! Glad the 25m pool will still be open)

The Charlton Lido has reopened - a 50m heated pool.

@ Pete, Woolwich Waterfront Leisure Centre and Eltham Leisure centre are good for toddlers.

Last time I went to deptford pool a man was showering naked. Anyone who knows the set up there will know why I was pretty shocked!

When is the Lewisham one opening please?

Robert - they're closing after the holidays. Unlike Peckham's soft play area, which is shutting for August.
