      Policies and Dress Standards

      Patrons are reminded that the complex forms part of Somerville House, a School with students from Pre-Prep to Year 12. Members of the public are asked to also abide by some policies of the School whilst on the property.

      Whilst we are open to the public, we also conduct co-operative use between public users and the School staff and students. We make every attempt to inform members of the public to changes in usage and closures. There are occasions, however, when pool space availability may change at short notice.

      School Policy that is enforced is as follows:

      • Somerville House Pool is a lap swimming pool facility only and is not a recreational pool, and as such it is not suitable for certain swimming levels, for example babies, toddlers and learn to swim
      • There is to be no sunbathing around the pool at any time
      • Dress standards also apply.

      All car spaces under the Sports Complex are allocated to staff of Somerville House. The car park is reserved for staff from 7.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday during school term time. A number of car spaces are also allocated to staff outside of these times. These areas are marked with signage. Please adhere to these guidelines for the use of the car park at the Murray Evans Sports and Aquatic Centre. 

      It is a condition of entry that all patrons wear appropriate attire within the complex. Swimwear must be of a training type design. Gym clothing with enclosed shoes is required in the Indoor Sports Complex.
