Otara pools – not just for swimming!

Over summer, the Manukau Canoe Club used Otara Pool and Leisure Centre to run their youth kayaking sessions!

The feedback from the club indicated that using the pools played an integral part in increasing participants’ confidence and skill level before they took their kayaks out onto the estuary. This benefited many children from the community, with some families even going on to visit the club nights.

Check out the photos of the kayakers, both in the pool and out on the estuary!
