UNLEYLIFE 23 Unley Swimming Centre made serious waves this summer recording its largest January attendance since 2004. The centre recorded its busiest day on record on Thursday, 5 January, with more than 1,500 swimmers coming through the gates. The Centre’s VAC Swim program, which teaches primary school students crucial water knowledge, was also the biggest centre-operated program run across the state with 425 students participating. Long-time Unley pool user Emma Christies says her family has been visiting for at least 10 years. “ T he pool has an absolutely fantastic community feel to it. We have been coming to the pool for at least ten years since our daughter Lily was two years old,” Emma says. Emma’s daughter Lily shares her mother’s love of the pool. “A ll my friends go to the pool and I love sitting on the grass and seeing everyone as well as going to swimming lessons,” L ily says. This season has also seen the Unley Swimming Centre run its highly successful ‘Friday for a Cause’ initiative whereby gold coin donations are collected on entry and donated to a good cause. The initiative, which promotes a healthy active lifestyle, chose Puddle Jumpers as the beneficiary for 2017 after it opened applications to all Unley-based charities and non-for-profit organisations. Puddle Jumpers Inc. is a non-profit, non-government organisation committed to responding to the social development needs of society’s most vulnerable children and young people. The Unley Swimming Centre is located at Ethel Street Forestville and will remain open until 28 May 2017.
