Pool space is limited due to pool closures and as we adjust to the Delta Level 2 restrictions. For more information visit our COVID-19 Services and facilities page.
Limited lane availability at peak times
Due to the extended main pool closure at Keith Spry Pool we will be accommodating extra swimming lessons and activities at Tawa Pool over the next few months.
There will still be times for everyone to swim, but during our peak times it will be busier than you’re used to. Please make sure to check our lane timetable before visiting the pool to make sure there is a spot for you to swim.
Pool closed 6.15pm–7.30pm on Mondays and Thursdays during term-time.
