Club Night

The Whakatane Swim Club hosts regular Club Nights in the summer season to provide swimmers with opportunities to compete for new and improved times in different events.

In Summer 2016 these club nights are from 6-7:30pm and all ages are welcome, from Kingfish to Makos. Dinner can be purchased for $5 after club night.
