TWO pools at Mansfield’s Water Meadows complex will be closed to the public this weekend because of a prestigious swimming competition.

The Bath Street facility hosts Mansfield Swimming Club’s Major Oak Open Meet on Saturday and Sunday, which will feature some of the country’s leading swimmers.

Both the leisure and the competition pool will be shut on both days, but the sauna and health suite as well as the fitness suite will be open as normal.

The event starts at 8am and is likely to finish at around 8pm on Saturday and then on Sunday will start at 8am and is due to finish at around 5pm.

Admission to watch the event is £3, and programmes will be available on each day. The pools will re-open as normal on Monday.
