With a full complement of sports around the region, the question on Bruce Williamson’s lips is “Where’s the swimming club just for us adults?”.
Williamson has found an answer to his own question after getting together with some like-minded swimmers to form the Sapphire Coast Adult Swimming Club.
It will be based at the Sapphire Coast Aquatic Centre, Pambula but with regular weekly activities in other selected shire pools during the summer season. The club is for age 18 and up. No top limit!
“It’s nothing new” Williamson says, ”There are over 50 adult swimming clubs in NSW alone. It’s just there aren’t any on the Far South Coast.”
Council’s aquatic and leisure co-ordinator Nick Hoynes said he was surprised to find there wasn’t one in the area after previous experience on the Gold Coast, Canberra and northern NSW.
Hoynes and Williamson have been working together over the winter months to ensure the new club is up and running for the summer season with activities to start in early October.
You don’t need to be a gun in the pool, either says Williamson. There will be activities for beginners to those with a competitive streak at times to suit most working adults.
The club will launch with three information and rego sessions on October 10 at the Sapphire Aquatic Centre from 6pm, then on October 12 from 5.30pm at the Bega Pool and the third on October 13 at Cobargo Pool from 5.30pm.
