SLIP, slop and slap before you take your first splash this weekend.
With the Stanthorpe Swimming Pool set to open its gates for the 2013-2014 spring/summer season, our time in the sun is about to increase.
As one of Stanthorpe's favourite spots come the warmer months, there is plenty to look forward to.
Manager Michael Smail said stalwarts of the facility would be pleased to know that the long awaited refurbishment of the bathrooms and change rooms had been completed.
"It's a project that has been in the pipeline for a while. They started doing them up when the pool closed before winter," Smail said.
"We have a disabled toilet, shower and separate change room, and the men's and ladies have also been totally revamped."
Smail said the recent weather had Granite Belt locals raring to go.
"We have had a lot of phone calls from people wanting to sign up for lessons and classes."
As has been tradition at the Stanthorpe pool, popular programs such as swimming club, swimming lessons, squad training and aqua aerobics will be starting up again.
"We will have a sign up day for swimming club the first week back at school, after the holidays," Smail said.
"Swimming club is for everyone of all ages and is held on Friday at 6pm.
"Aqua aerobics will start up on October 8 and be on Tuesdays at 9am and 5.30pm and Thursdays at 5.30pm.
"Swimming lessons will be starting up in the second week back from holidays. We have classes for mum and bubs, non-school aged and school aged children."
The pool will open at 10am-5pm on Saturday.
The first week will have different opening times but after that the remainder of the season will be: 6am-6pm Monday and Wednesday, 6am-7pm Tuesday and Thursday, 6am-5pm Friday, 9am-5pm Saturday and noon-5pm Sunday.
To book in for lessons or classes phone 46810181.
