Reduced Group Fitness schedule over Melb Cup weekend due to painting

We are pleased to inform you the group fitness studio will be completely painted in line with the centre refurbishment schedule currently being undertaken.

Please note however this change will have a direct impact on customers with the studio being out of action for up to five days.

The Eltham Leisure Centre team has worked closely with Nillumbik Shire Council to commission the works with as little disruption to ELC services as possible.  The decision was made to undertake these works from Friday 3 November with completion and the Group Fitness program back to full capacity from Wednesday 8 November.

With the last unofficial long weekend falling over the Cup carnival, concluding with the Melbourne Cup public holiday on Tuesday 7 November traditionally attendances are a little lower than usual with people taking advantage of the weekend.

ELC Manager, Liam O’Brien states:

“We felt this was the best time to effectively close the room to allow these works to be undertaken.  Whilst some classes will be affected, we have been able to move classes into the temporary program room upstairs and the stadium.  Based on the scale of works it was simply not practical to attempt these works after hours.”

Reduced Melb Cup weekend timetable

Customers please note the centre hours for the public holiday on Tuesday 7 November – Melbourne Cup day are 8am – 8pm.

Please note Childcare does not operate on Public Holidays.

Note: all Virtual Group Fitness classes held in Studio 1 will NOT run over these dates.
