Swimming Pools

List of private and Council owned swimming pools in CHB.

Waipukurau has a heated indoor swimming pool which is owned by CHB Community Trust. The Trust is contracted with Council to provide swimming services for the District through a Service Agreement. Council's involvement is to provide some funding and to monitor the performance of the Trust with respect to the agreement.

The stadium has a sprung wooden floor and is used for Basketball, Indoor Soccer, Netball, Indoor Hockey and Miniball. The stadium can also be hired out to approved groups for major functions. Please enquire at reception.
