The Olympic Pool History:

Opened in 1939, The Olympic 50m Swimming Pool has been in operation for over 80 years.
This is the first 50m Swimming Pool in New Zealand (and remains one of the best)…

The Olympic hosted The Empire Games (Commonwealth Games) in 1950 and was the premier swimming center for Swimming New Zealand events.

The roof came on the facility 25 years ago (along with the gym), and we have made plenty of operational improvements…yet the shape of our 50m stays the same.

Who uses the pool?

The Olympic is here for everyone and anyone to use. We welcome all swimmers to our center and you can find a casual price list HERE or we have many MEMBERSHIP options.

We have two different swim squads that use the facility.
United Swim Club – Who is one of the premier competitive clubs in NZ.
Rick Wells Swim Squad – Perfect for non-competitive swimmers, open water swimmers, and triathletes.

Why you should swim here?

The Olympic is a one-of-a-kind facility. To find a 50m swimming pool is hard enough…but we have one for you, right in the heart of Newmarket, Auckland. Our water quality is superb, the temperature of the main pool and spa pool are more than comfortable. We have world champions such as Moss Burmester and Lauren Boyle who train here frequently.

The spa, sauna and steam room are the perfect tools for wellness and relaxation.
