Community to name Circular Head pool

Belgravia Leisure and the Circular Head Council have asked the Circular Head Community to come up with a name for the Circular Head Community Wellbeing Centre.

Over the next month residents will be able to submit their ideas and vote for their favourite shortlisted name. It is recognised that the current name whilst reflecting what the uses of the facilities on-site is a bit of a mouthful and was selected as a working title without any community input. Council would like to provide the community with the opportunity to be involved in selecting a name for the facility.

Due to open in early 2019, the facility will include a six-lane 25m pool, a three-lane 12.5m program pool for swimming lessons, a children’s aquatic play area, multipurpose program space, and much more.

The competition is open to all residents and schoolchildren in the Circular Head region, with great prizes up for grabs, including;

  • 3 x Family Aquatic Memberships for the top three shortlisted names
  • 1 x month of free-swimming lessons for the winner whose entry is chosen
  • A 20% discount on the first school group swimming booking for schools that submit 30 or more entries

“We encourage the community to get behind this fantastic competition designed to give our new facility a wonderful and befitting name,” said Circular Head Council Mayor Daryl Quilliam.

“The centre will provide many benefits for the residents of the Circular Head region. Not only will this site provide new options to engage in physical activity, but it will also allow the community to create meaningful relationships through collaboration between community groups, sporting clubs, businesses, community service providers and health service providers.

“We look forward to giving the Circular Head community the opportunity to have their say and make the new facility their own.”

The winning name will be announced in the new year. Other key dates for those that are interested in participating are as follows:

  • Submit your name idea between November 28 and December 7, 2018
  • Vote for your favourite shortlisted name between December 14 and 21
