The Waitaki Aquatic Centre is trialling off-peak swimming options and introducing an off-peak price for adult visitors.

Use of the pools has grown substantially over the past four years, with squad, swim school and other programmes leading the way. This means that before-and-after school times have become progressively busier, as school-aged children make use of the pools.

The Aquatic Centre is dedicated to providing the space for the whole community to enjoy the facility. Off-peak pool use has not changed much over the past few years so the Aquatic Centre wants to encourage adults to use the pool when it is less busy rather than compete with very busy pool space after school. 

The Waitaki Aquatic Centre will be trialling a reduced rate of pool entry for off-peak use. With support from Councillors the Centre is introducing this trial at the start of Term 3 - from 23 July to 19 December 2018. The special rate is only valid on Adult and Community card/ green prescription/ gold card entry between 9am and 3pm. This excludes weekends, school holiday & public holidays. Customers can choose either casual entry or concession cards with the rates shown below. 

​​​​Casual Rate (single entry)Concession cards (10 swim)
Adult$4.10 (normally $5.10)$37.00 (normally $46.00)
Community card/ green prescription/ gold card$3.10 (normally $4.10)$28.00 (normally $37.00)

The Aquatic Centre is also investigating if it is worth introducing individual yearly membership for swimming.
