Local sports clubs are now able to take part in cool water recovery sessions at Aquamoves.

Manager Leanne Mulcahy said the outdoor 50 metre pool is being maintained during the colder months to provide a safe and comfortable environment for recovery sessions.

"Some clubs use the river to recover but we thought it would be great if we could offer the outdoor pool as well as the opportunity to use the hydrotherapy pool, spa and sauna," Ms Mulcahy said.

"The cool water helps improve recovery time and reduces tension and muscle fatigue.

"Aquamoves offers reduced rates to sporting clubs, making this an affordable choice for recovery sessions."

"At this stage, we have had a couple of sports clubs come down and trial the sessions, and we are hoping to attract more in the coming weeks.

"We are hoping to be able to offer this program until the end of the winter sports season."

The outdoor pool is available for bookings from 8.30am to 12noon every Sunday.
