Summer expansion of the Super Swim Initiative

Village Pool

Reduced entry prices for senior swimmers to the Aquatics Hastings Pools in Clive and Flaxmere has been so successful since launching in 2019, they are now being offered at Havelock North and Frimley summer pools as well.

The special offer has been made possible this year with support from Royston Health Trust and Hastings District Council.  Royston Health Trust supports projects and programmes designed to make a real difference to the health of the people of Hawke’s Bay.

The “Super Swim” $1 entry price has been offered at both Flaxmere Pool and Clive War Memorial Pool, and will be available for the summer pools when they open on November 28, 2022 – a discounted price for SuperGold cardholders from the normal fee of $3.50.  

Hastings District Council aquatics manager Tom Page said keeping up a good level of physical activity was critical for ongoing health, wellbeing, independence and quality of life for Hawke’s Bay’s growing population of older people.

“Water is the perfect medium for this through swimming, water walking or other water-based activities.

“We also know that for many seniors affordability is an issue, so if we can reduce costs one of the key barriers is minimised.

“We look forward to welcoming SuperGold cardholders to the pools this summer to enjoy a swim in the sunshine this summer.

“We want to thank the team at the Royston Heath Trust for supporting this important initiative”

Jacqui Gray, Chair of the Royston Health Trust chair Jacqui Gray said the trust was delighted to be able to support a programme which enabled the district’s older population to keep active and enjoy a swim at one of their local pools.
