UNB pool closing

UNB's Sir Max Aitken Pool will be decommissioned next year.

The university's president Eddy Campbell says they made the difficult decision to move ahead with plans to decommission the Lady Beaverbrook Gym in the fall of 2018.

Despite those plans, Campbell says they're committed to keeping UNB's varsity swim team and are looking at where the athletes will practise and compete in the future.

The closure will also affect the Fredericton Diving Club, Synchronized Swimming Club and the Fredericton Aquanaut Swim Team.
