The latest swim pools to be available in 2018, according to new research by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), will include the Aquatic Fitness Club, Aquatic Spa, Aquatics Club, Swimming Club and Swimming Pool.
“We’re looking at a number of pools that will be coming to market next year, and some of them are a lot of fun, they’re a lot different, and we’re hoping they’re going to be a lot more appealing than what we’ve got now,” AIHW Health and Disability Services Manager Andrew Ritchie said.
“If you look at the swim clubs in Australia, there’s a lot that’s fun, a lot going on, and you’re looking for a place to go out and have a swim and have fun, and then you can sit back and enjoy it.”
So it’s a bit like the gymnasium, it’s really a place for people to go for that kind of activity.
“While there are many pools in Australia that are popular with the general public, the latest research indicates that the majority of people would not go swimming at home.”
The main reason for that is because it’s not a lot cheaper, and it’s just not fun to swim, and so most people opt for the pool, not because it is more expensive, but because they don’t feel like they are getting a good swim,” Mr Ritchie explained.”
There’s a huge difference between the pool you can swim in at home and a pool that you can go to, and that is why the Aquatics club is one of the most popular, and the Aquatists Club, which is also popular with parents, is also one of those.
“Mr Ritchie says there is a big demand for the swimming pool.”
It is an option that people are looking for, they don and don’t want to go to the gym or do other things to keep their body fit,” he said.
Mr Riddle said it is important that the public knows what is available to them when it comes to swimming pools.”
When you look out in the public pool, you can’t really see anything else that’s out there, but when you look in a private pool, or you look through the back door and see there’s an indoor swimming pool, that’s where you can see all the other fun things,” he explained.
Mr Robinson said the majority pool is in the west, and is the only pool that the people who live there can see.”
They can swim at home, they can’t swim at the pool in the city, so that’s what’s really important about the swimming pools in the country,” he noted.”
In Australia, we’ve been focusing on that [swimming pool] issue, and what we have is the Aquathist Club, and Aquathists Club is the next step, and I think we’re looking to have Aquathism in the next two or three years.
“Mr Robinson says the Aquaturist Club is not just for people who want to be good swimmers, but also for people looking to socialise with other people.”
This is not a club for everyone, but for a lot people, they just want to have fun and socialise and play and have good times,” he added.
