Monmouth Schools Sports Club

Monmouth Schools Sports Club

Notice to members – 10/8/2020

On Friday 7th August the Welsh Government confirmed that swimming pools and indoor gyms can reopen in Wales from Monday 10th August.  The schools have given much thought to the reopening of the Monmouth Schools Sports Club but with our pupils returning to school in just four weeks, with regret, we have taken the decision that for now MSSC must remain closed.  This decision has not been taken lightly and we hope you all understand that September 2020 presents every school with the unprecedented challenge of educating their pupils in the safest possible environment.  To permit members of the public to share our facilities increases the risk of transmission of Covid-19, not only to our members, but to the pupils otherwise contained within protective ‘bubbles’.  As no one knows the effect that reopening schools will have on the incidence of Covid-19 in the community, we believe the safest course of action is to delay reopening until we have a greater insight into this risk.  The situation will be under constant review and please rest assured that all being well, we hope it might be possible to welcome you all back to MSSC from October half term.


Enjoy the health and social benefits of joining our very own Sports Club.  With a relaxed family atmosphere, Monmouth Schools Sports Club is set within its own grounds and has ample parking.  Our members keep fit in the fabulous six lane 25m swimming pool which, with the latest UV filtration system in place, means we are able to keep chlorine levels low.  A range of cardiovascular and resistance equipment is available in our Fitness Suite and for reasonable extra charges members can also take advantage of specialist classes
