About Swim Heretaunga Pool

Swim Heretaunga Pool offers a range of options to suit your interests including an excellent Learn to Swim & Competitive Swimming programme. The complex features a 25-metre training pool and 15 metre learn to swim pool. Swim Heretaunga features dedicated lanes for recreational swimming and is also home to the Heretaunga Sundevils Swimming club.

If you prefer to work out with others, our AquaFit classes cater for all fitness levels.

There’s always fun to be had at Swim Heretaunga Pool with giant inflatables for the kids to play on during school holidays. Please note: children under the age of 8 must be actively supervised by a caregiver over 16 years on the inflatables, i.e. be within arms reach.
