Twice a month, Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre offers women the opportunity to have the pool entirely to themselves.

We have female lifeguards on duty and all women are welcome. Boys under 6 years old are also welcome to join with their mothers.

Women-only swimming provides a place where you can feel comfortable and relaxed while enjoying a healthy and fun activity. It also provides a great chance to get together and bond through exercise. The pool, spa and sauna are available to use during our Women-only swimming events.

When:

Women’s Only Swimming is held on the first and third Sunday night of each month from 8:00pm to 9:45pm.

Cost:

  • $7.20 per person
  • $18.50 per family (Up to 4 people per family)
