Whanganui Swimming Club

The Whanganui Swimming Club is proudly promoting, developing and fostering the sport of swimming in Whanganui and the surrounding area. 

Swimming is a year round sport and our base is the Splash Centre at Springvale Park.

We are a family-friendly club where all members have the right to learn and improve their skills in a respectful and safe environment. Our swimmers participate in the programme for fun, fitness and competition and the things they learn go well beyond what is taught in the pool. Club members forge friendships, develop confidence and self-discipline, gain time-management and organisational skills and learn to set and strive for goals.

We aim to provide every club member the opportunity to achieve success at his or her level of ability. Our head coach, Richard Gheel, has been coaching for more than 30 years and swam for Northern Ireland at three Commonwealth Games (1986, 1990 and 1994) and Ireland at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games.
