Swimming is an excellent fun and fitness activity that anyone can take part in.

We leave for the Pioneer pool complex from Stanmore Road and Puriri Street on Tuesday afternoons, and for the Tairoa QE2 pool from Stanmore Road on Thursday afternoons. Puriri Street also swims at Jellie Park on some Monday mornings.

The rural programme has regular swimming at Dudley Pool in Rangiora, and at E A Networks Pool in Ashburton.

Check programmes for details.

Whether you wish to do some lengths in the main pool, splash around in the recreational pools or simply come for a relax in the spa or sauna, this is a great activity, even on cold winter days, when inside it is nice and warm.
