Change for 2013 NZ Pool Championships

Posted by Matt Warren on Tuesday, April 2, 2013

The New Zealand Pool Championships is now entering its 12th year and has proved to be one of our most popular events that allows a full range of club members to attend and compete at the same event and venue. Wellington has been the traditional venue for this event, apart from 2011 when the Rugby World Cup forced a move to Hamilton.

We have been forced to find a new venue and date for this event in 2013 due to an international diving event being booked over our original booking at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre.

Suitable pools for this event are now subject to increasing pressure from other pool users and the reduction of such pools post the Christchurch earthquake. This has limited the alternatives available for the New Zealand Pool Championships.

Following consultation with the National Sport Committee the 2013 New Zealand Pool Championships will now be held at Te Rapa Pool in Hamilton from 12 midday Friday 11 - Sunday 13 October 2013.
