As the Center nears its twentieth year of operation, mechanical systems including the aquatic center air quality control unit are in need of replacement. These large systems have reached their life expectancy and replacement will enable the Center to continue to handle its large volume of daily visitors. The project will also include enhancements of the member experience through improved and expanded amenities as well as energy conservation strategies. A project to create an additional 140 parking spaces and a new turf field for Clayton High School is concurrently under construction.

Registered participants will be contacted with more details.
Primary locker rooms will open at the end of October. Members and guests may continue to use the Team Locker Rooms at the end of the hall during this closure.
All Courts are now open! Court activities such as Badminton Open Play (Tuesday and Thursday nights) and Adult Pick-Up Basketball have resumed. See the Court Schedule for exact times.
Over the next few months, small closures will happen throughout the building to update fixtures, paint and flooring.
