Our club members have a range of swimming abilities and goals. Most swim for fitness, fun and to socialise with other swimmers, while others train to compete in New Zealand Masters sanctioned meets or for endurance events such as triathlons, ocean swims and ironman.

Huia Masters Swimmers Club was formed in 1982 so this year will be our 40th anniversary. Watch this space for news of our upcoming celebrations and take a look at this insightful history created for our 30th Anniversary.
