The Mount Barker Memorial Swimming Pool opened for the 2023/2024 season on Monday 30 October, 2023.

Pool Co-ordinator Mark Bird said it was a smooth start to the season.

“Our pre-season preparations started in late July," he said. "By mid-October the water quality was up to spec and we were able to open three weeks earlier than last season.”

The opening has been perfectly timed to take advantage of the warm start to November.

The pool is open for morning laps from 6.30am, Monday to Friday. The facility stays open until 6pm, with lap swimming only from 6pm-6.30pm. Weekend and public holiday open hours are 12pm-6pm. 

The Mount Barker Swim Club has also started for the 23/24 season. The Club provides a fun, family friendly environment for people wanting to learn competitive swimming in a non-competitive setting. 

“The Club is a great way to brush up on skills for school swimming carnivals right through to competitive swimming, with members able to compete in local, regional and state competitions," Club representative Kelly Osborne said.

Old and new members are welcome. For more details contact [email protected].
