Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre

About the centre

Just across the road from the beautiful beach at Stanmore Bay, our award-winning Pool and Leisure Centre offers a great range of activities for people of every level, from the young of age to the young at heart.

Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre has pools, a modern gym, four badminton courts, two basketball courts, a swim shop, an onsite café, our own Kauri Kids early childhood education centre and plenty of parking.

As well as swimming and working out in the gym, you can attend any of the more than 80 group fitness classes — including Les Millsclasses — we run each week. We have two group fitness studios and a cycle studio.

We love our community and are proud that our centre's two stadiums host:

  • preschool gymnastics
  • school holiday programmes
  • school-age and adult sports leagues
  • specialised programmes for seniors
  • drop-in sports sessions.

Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre was awarded Supreme Club of the Year (2017) in the New Zealand Exercise Industry awards. Our team is hugely passionate about working alongside our community to provide opportunities to get active. We welcome your enquiry — you can use the contact us form or, even better, come and visit us to check out the awesome facilities on offer.

Learn to Swim

Jump in at our award-winning swim school (New Zealand’s Outstanding Swim School of the Year 2016).

We offer:

  • small class sizes
  • free swimming before and after lessons
  • plenty of free parking
  • discounts for families.

We can instruct swimmers of any age and ability, from 6-month-old babies to adults.

Why choose our Learn to Swim classes?

  • We really care about teaching water safety. All our students are taught key water safety skills first, then progress to mastering swimming skills.
  • All our instructors hold a New Zealand Certification in Aquatics and are AUSTSWIM qualified.
  • As a community facility, we are more affordable than many private providers - and we never compromise on quality.

Our facility accommodates family members of all ages. We use our big pool for deep water confidence and greater distance, and our shallower, warmer learn to swim pool for our younger swimmers.

Be in the pool with your baby, or take the opportunity to do your own laps or get in a quick workout while your school-aged child takes a class!

Term classes

Which class is right for me or my child?

We offer free assessments to determine yours or your child’s level.

Book a free assessment

School holiday learn to swim courses 

Holiday swim courses run in the morning over five consecutive half days (four if there is a public holiday) from Monday to Friday. We take enrolments for complete courses only.

If your child is a bit stuck on an element of their swimming, by coming every day for five days they'll normally crack it. Conquer that learning to breathe, breaststroke, or butterfly!

How to book a school holiday course

Contact us using the details on this page, or talk to the Learn to Swim team at the centre. A free assessment may be required to determine your child's level.

Swimming lessons and water safety for schools

We’re experienced and skilled at working with schools, tailoring programmes to schools’ needs and the age and stage of their students:

  • swimming lessons
  • lifejacket usage
  • deep water confidence
  • boating experiences.

Lessons can take place in our facilities, or our instructors can come to you if your school has its own pool.

Auckland Council Pools and Leisure is a partner in the Greater Auckland Aquatic Action Plan (GAAAP) programme of funded school swimming lessons.

Activities

Footwear for indoor activities

Please note that non-marking sports shoes must be worn for all indoor activities.
