The SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre, opened in 2011, is South Australia's premier, state-of-the- art, FINA compliant, competition and recreation swimming facility.

The facility features the 50-metre Matt Cowdrey competition pool for swimming, a 55 metre competition pool for diving and water polo and over 1000 M2 of leisure and recreational water, including an interactive aquatic playground, splash deck and water slides.

The Aquatic Centre is accessible to all and offers South Australians and visitors alike an exciting venue to play and train and perform.

Whether you want to do some serious swimming, get involved in water polo, have a go at diving, muck around in the leisure pools, hold a school carnival, use the state of the art gymnasium, watch world class aquatic events, host a kids birthday party or use the stunning corporate facilities, the Aquatic Centre has it covered.

The South Australian Sports Institute (SASI) aquatic high performance programs are based here. This state of the art training base includes a dry land training facility, gym, sauna and steam room to prepare our South Australian athletes for the world stage.

The Aquatic Centre is managed by the YMCA on behalf of the Government of South Australia . All enquiries including opening hours, entry prices, memberships, bookings, events, should be directed to the Centre in the first instance,
