DSW Swim Club, Wellington

DSW is a swim club based in Wellington, New Zealand. Our club is GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Transgendered) friendly, and we welcome everyone whether it's your first time in the pool or you're an experienced swimmer.

TAMS Swim Meet!

Each year, DSW and TAMS (the GLBT swimming team from Auckland) have a fun and friendly swim meet. Next year, this is due to be in Auckland on the weekend of the Big Gay Out and the opening weekend of the Auckland Pride Festival. In addition, Waitangi day is on Thursday 6 February. On the Saturday, morning there is also the option of sea swimming with some TAMS people.

The swim meet will take place at Mt Roskill Aquatic Centre on Saturday afternoon, and in the evening there is a TAMS/DSW dinner. Swimmers of all ability are welcome at the meet, and the competition is fun and inclusive. Last year, almost all DSW members went up for the weekend and had a great time, in the pool and out of it. Billeting in Auckland is possible for those who would like.

Registrations only close in early February, though there is an early-bird discount if you get your registration in before 24 January.

It would be great to see a strong showing from the team and I encourage you to make the effort to get up to Auckland for what will be a fun weekend.

It's Summer!
Join us for an ocean swim!

Now that it's summer, DSW members like to jump in the ocean. Join us for a nice ocean swim at Freyberg Beach. Those just starting out can swim around the gorgeous fountain, and the more ambitious can swim to the lighthouse and back. Join DSW now and come swim with us in the sea.
