Slide Te Rapa Coming Soon

New ‘learn to swim’ pool set to make a splash!


Due to COVID-19 and the start to the year 2020, the opening of this location has been pushed back to late 2021.

Hilton Brown Swimming is incredibly proud to be opening its eighth, private learn to swim facility in Te Rapa, Hamilton.

“Since 2009, we’ve had a facility in Chartwell, and love being part of the Hamilton Learn to Swim community. With our Chartwell numbers at an all-time high and demand ever increasing, the decision to design and build a new facility in Te Rapa was a natural one for us” states Hilton Brown Swimming’s General Manager Andrew Brown.

“The facility will be state of the art and has been designed with children in mind. Our unique teaching methods are the result of over 45 years’ experience – we know what works. Our goal is for your children and their children to become safer and more confident in and around the water – giving them lessons for life. Spending summer swimming in a river, lake or ocean is a rite of passage for most kiwi kids. We want to ensure that future generations are also able to spend their summers this way.”

The facility will use the latest technology for filtration and air handling. The water will be treated using first class technology and heated to a shiver free 32°C (warmer than Fiji!), with the air also being heated for the comfort of the swimmers.

All staff are highly trained and cater for all ages of swimmers, from babies through to adults. Every Hilton Brown swimming instructor receives comprehensive training to teach correct technique while ensuring children progress and have fun.
