New Wanaka Pool

NEW WANAKA POOL

The new Wanaka Pool is opening soon!

Construction of the new complex is due to be finished by the end of May. We should know a definite opening date around mid-April and will be making a big splash (if you’ll pardon the pun!) at the time.

Early-bird memberships on sale 1 April 2018

Pre-paid memberships for the new 3-pool complex next to the existing Wanaka Recreation Centre (Three Parks off Ballantyne Rd) go on sale from 1 April.

Prices are increasing to match those of Alpine Aqualand over in Frankton. You can find them here. NB Existing memberships will be transferred across to the new pool and will continue to run at their current rate until expiry, even if this date is after the new pool opening.

Dive in before opening day to score some special early-bird promotions for both existing and new members, including:

  • A shiny new RFID tag providing automatic entry to the new pool once open
  • FREE extra weeks loaded onto your membership term or concession card (see below)
  • Vouchers for one FREE swim at the new pool AND one FREE game of Foot Golf at Frankton Golf Centre
  • A voucher for 10% off Speedo items at our on-site retail outlet (valid until 31st August 2018)
  • A chance to win one of five Speedo prize packs (each valued at more than $200)
  • The first 100 people to sign up get a FREE Speedo kit bag
  • PLUS all existing members who extend their current membership before 31 May AND all current direct debit members go into the draw to win a super-exclusive ‘first splash in the new pool’ on opening day!

There are packages to suit everyone from solo swimmers to families and seniors.

Just head into Wanaka Recreation Centre or the existing pool on Plantation Road after 1 April. Terms & conditions apply.
