Major Pool Hall Refurbishment Work Commencing 11/05/15

Mercer Hall Leisure Centre is to undergo major refurbishment work within the pool hall as part of an investment programme involving Hyndburn Leisure and Hyndburn Borough Council.  As a consequence the pool hall will be closing on Monday 11th May 2015 for the duration of works which is currently scheduled as an 8 week programme.

The programme of works will involve:

  •  Installing a specialist stretch ceiling

  •  To repair wall tiles and prime for ready for redecoration
  •  To repair and decorate timber surfaces.
  •  To clean down and recoat the pool edge surround

Plans for the redevelopment are displayed within main reception.

Throughout the pool hall closure we will ensure that regular updates on progress are issued via Centre notices and updates on the Trust’s website.

It is our intention during this period to continue where possible and still operate the changing facilities on poolside, however for some or possibly all of the works access may not be possible. Following a pre-contract meeting for the works on the 20th April 2015 we shall be able to shed more light on this matter.

We also advise customers to make use of the Trust’s other leisure centre facilities i.e. Hyndburn Leisure Centre and Norden Sports Centre for further pool, gym, and dry sport services.  For more details about these centres please visit

On behalf of Hyndburn Leisure we kindly ask for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience this project may cause, however, we are confident that it will be worth it and that all users will benefit from the changes.  It is an exciting time and we aim to do everything we can to minimise disruption and look forward to introducing excellent, customer-focused facilities up to modern standards.
