New Waves

Work is proceeding on the Waves Swimming Pool and Aquatic Centre at Baulkham Hills. Waves

The $55 million redevelopments of the much-loved swimming centre started last year when the old Waves pool in Mileham Rd, opened on March 11, 1967, was demolished.

The rebuild includes a FINA Standard Olympic sized swimming pool with 10 lanes, a combined indoor 25 metre learn to swim pool and family leisure pool, swimming clubhouse, and large gym and fitness centre.

It will also have an additional 20-metre warm water pool with spa and sauna facilities, a 25-metre outdoor pool, spectator seating, a café, a water play structure and a splash pad, plus additional parking.

Windsor Wolves will aim to capitalise on their late run of form as they break up until the start of the next season. After a less than convincing start, the Wolves charged back into finals contention with four wins, two close losses and one draw to finish just a point outside the finals when the Ron Massey Cup was called off.

“I have spoken to all the players, and we are now thinking of the next season because of our excellent performances prior to the suspension of the league,” Wolves coach Chris Yates said. “It has been tough on the players, who last played in June, but the pandemic is still with us.


“We want to keep as much of the squad together for the next season and plan on recruiting new players. We plan to start training in November and will also have our club awards shortly.

“The good thing about the break is being able to spend more time with the family because between training, the competition and my work, I did not have much time at home.”

Meanwhile, the entertaining Kaiviti Silktails returned to Fiji earlier this month after an impressive six-place finish after 15 rounds. They plan to be back in November for pre-season training, depending on what restrictions are in place.
