Aqualink Return Making a Splash

Whitehorse News - January 2021

The cool embrace of the pool during the summer heat is available to enjoy once more. Aqualink Box Hill and Aqualink Nunawading were thrilled to re-open their doors, following the easing of restrictions.

With COVIDSafe distancing, hygiene, cleaning and other protective measures in place, Aqualink is ready for people to dive right in.

One of those who was eager to make a return is regular swimmer and member Daniel Patience, who booked a spot at Box Hill’s outdoor pool the first day available. He also enjoys swimming at Aqualink Nunawading. The local podiatrist gets to Aqualink three times a week, trying to squeeze in a swim between seeing clients. 

“On the face of it, swimming laps might seem boring to some. But moving through the water gives you a freedom and I do it to exercise the entire body,” he said. “It’s a wonderful skill to have and to pass on to your kids. Being in an outdoor pool on a nice day is simply bliss.”

Being able to bring his children for free until they are five years old is a bonus. Children and parents alike can enjoy hours of fun at interactive water play areas at both Aqualink centres. There is something for all ages with indoor and outdoor pools, group fitness, gym, spa and sauna, while personal trainers and group fitness classes can help provide the motivation to get back into action.
