News from The Center of Clayton 

Center Renovation Update November 1

The Leisure Pool and hot tub are open!
Post Date:11/01/2019
The Leisure Pool and hot tub are open! Thank you for your patience during the opening process for these facilities. Mechanical failures like those we experienced with both systems sometimes occur when these aquatic facilities sit dry for an extended length of time. Both are now ready for you on our regular schedule!

Locker rooms will be closed periodically as maintenance teams work through some outstanding issues including several suggestions made by you, our members. The Men's Locker Room is expected to be closed Friday, November 1 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm and again on Thursday, November 7 from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. The Women's Locker Room will be closed from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm on Wednesday, November 6. Team locker rooms will be available during these closures. Thank you to everyone who shared their feedback with us to make our facilities even better.

Second floor restrooms are nearly complete and will open at the end of next week. First floor lobby restrooms and CHS Team Locker Rooms will close for renovations in mid-November. Both will take 3-4 weeks.

The Mind Body Room will be closed for painting today and Monday, November 4. The Aerobics Room will be closed for painting November 6 - 8. Group exercise classes have been moved to alternate rooms during these closures. Please see the welcome desk for exact locations. A mild latex paint odor is expected in and near these rooms on the closure dates.

We will continue to update you as information becomes available. Project details are also available on the Center of Clayton Renovation webpage
