Waterhole is OPEN

Waterhole is open and operating under both "Red and Orange" light settings

Waterhole can continue to operate under these settings with our Health and Safety protocols in place (these can be found under the "About Us" section)

All persons entering the facility aged 12yrs 3months or older will be required to be fully vaccinated against covid-19, you will be asked to scan both your vaccination pass and the covid tracer QR code on entry at Reception.

All persons (year 4 and older) are also required to wear masks at all times within the facility unless actively participating in a class, meaning that for swimmers they wear a mask entering the facility, around the facility and only remove it when they head down the pool to start their class, once they finish their class they must immediately out their mask back on when they return to their bags.

All our staff are fully vaccinated and will continue to wear masks at all times

Our Complex

Where to find us

The complex is privately owned and operated by


Owner Judith Wright

Directors Judith Wright and Gwen Ryan

Swim School Manager Sarah Blackburn

Management Team

Sarah Blackburn, Daniel Ryan and Phillip Ryan are all responsible for the day to day running of the business

The pool complex was designed and built especially for TEACHING AND COACHING, and we believe we run one of the best teaching and coaching organisations in the world.

We have 2 teaching pools and both pools are well heated 

Water Quality

As well as daily testing a minimum of 3x per day. Our pools are independently tested every month and the results are always displayed in the reception area.

As we are a privately owned complex and mainly used as a teaching facility we don't have a large number of public swimmers attending the facility. Which means we can keep our water quality controlled and in the best possible condition for you our clients.
