There will be improved group changing and shower areas, and new bench seating. The upgrade will also include new lockers, toilets, dryers, and new ceilings with LED lighting. 

Work on the changing area is expected to start on Monday 3 April and will take around 14 weeks to complete.  During this time the swimming pool and all other facilities will remain open with a temporary changing area available pool side. 

Cllr Anna Badcock, Cabinet Member for Leisure at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “The refurbished area will provide a much better environment for people at Thame Leisure Centre before and after they swim.  This investment is part of our ongoing commitment to provide the best leisure facilities for all our residents across South Oxfordshire.”
