2019 Craigs Investment Partners Mini Putt Challenge

On Tuesday the 12th of March, we had the opportunity to help Craigs Investment Partners host their 2019 Annual Mini Putt Challenge.  And not just host, we were the not-for-profit organisation that they chose to support this year.   We were beyond stoked to have been chosen and the funds raised will contribute directly to the development of swimming in the region

It was a fantastic night - perfect weather, a great venue and plenty of food and refreshments.

28 teams took part, and congratulations to the winners – 1st:  Colliers;  2nd:  PAN Media; and 3rd: PwC #1.

It was an awesome opportunity for us to bring a number of our top age group swimmers to help out on the night.  They really enjoyed the opportunity to talk to the teams and we were really proud of the way they contributed to a great event – they are an awesome bunch of young people.

We’d like to acknowledge the businesses that partnered with Craigs Investment Partners to make this event the success it was –

  • ProDrive for the use of their facilities
  • New World Rototuna for donating all the food on the day
  • Little India |  FastLane Fitness | Mavis Made to Order for donating some fantastic prizes
  • WaiBoP Football Federation for allowing us to use their soundsystem
  • EBBETT Audi for donating the Hole In One prize

And to our individual hole sponsors –

  • PAN Media
  • ANZ
  • EBBETT Audi
  • PKF Hamilton
  • Braun Bond and Lomas Lawyers

A huge thanks also to Craigs Investment Partners whose commitment to facilitating this annual event in support of organisations like Swimming Waikato is really appreciated.  For us, the financial support is fantastic.  And being able to share a little bit about our organisation is a huge bonus for us too!

Club Amalgamation Update

The combining of the independent Hamilton Swimming Clubs moves a significant step forward.

The Hillcrest and ACE Swimming Clubs have now confirmed with members how the new club will be run.

As a result, the roles for the new Head and Site Coaches are being advertised from today and you can find the Role Advertisements and Position Descriptions below.

The shortlist of names for the new club has been identified and club members will review and vote on that in the coming weeks.

Over the last month, combined swim training for our senior squads has been occurring at the 50m Waterworld complex in Hamilton. This will be continuing as we merge co-ordination of the different squads at the Hamilton Boys High School, Hillcrest Normal School and Waterworld locations.

This is an exciting time going forward as an across Hamilton swimming club coordination and provision of services becomes a reality.

If you have any questions, please email:
