Congratulations on taking the first step towards learning such an 

important life skill.

At Waterhole we will teach either you or your child to swim 

both confidently and safely.

All clients are treated as individuals and are progressed on skill ability not age!

We have classes 7 days per week and have payment options to suit everyone.

Our Complex

Where to find us

Parrs Park, West Coast Rd

Glen Eden, Waitakere City, Auckland

Our main 25m pool

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.

Small Pool

10m Learners pool

depth .9m

heated to 32oC

Main Pool

25m Training pool

depth 1.1m

heated to 29oC

The air is also heated to within 3oC - 4oC of the water temperature, this is essential for indoor pools to prevent condensation, so if you are sitting around, the air is warm, but it is ideal for the swimmers.
