The start of something extraordinary

Spotlight on Quality Swim Schools - Greendale Swimming Club

Greendale Swimming Club was established in 1959 and based on the Taradale Primary School grounds off Ngarimu Cres in Taradale, Napier.

They run 2 pools, a 25m 5 lane lap pool including a deep end which is fantastic for water safety skills and diving. They also have a smaller learner pool both sitting at 29 degrees all year round.

The Swim School is run and managed by Derryn Fitness. Derryn has been involved in swimming for the past 20 years and with her amazing team of instructors are passionate about teaching children and adults the lifesaving skills of learn to swim.  

The swim school caters for around 300 children running 6 days a week. Classes run from preschool through to adults all year round and parent and child classes over the summer months.

They also run holiday programmes for swimmers where they can attend either 1 or 2 weeks.

Their learn to swim programme feeds through to the club including squad levels and fitness programmes.

Derryn and her team are all trained through Swimming New Zealand and her staff specialise in Early Childhood, School Age, Adults and Teaching Swimmers with a Disability.

They also support many schools with their schools programme not only from local schools but also schools outside the Taradale.
