In a sign that summer is just around the corner, the Tamworth Olympic Swimming Pool is open for business, with swimmers champing at the bit to get in.
The city's central pool on the corner of Bridge Street and Kable Avenue has started the season with a 'soft' opening, meaning reduced hours - 12pm to 6.30pm - until November 20, when opening hours expand to 5.30am to 6.30pm.
Some of the pool's first users were the Tamworth City and Kootingal Moonbi Swimming Clubs, who co-hosted a swim carnival with 11 other clubs from across the North West.
Clubs from as far as Singleton and Tenterfield dove into Tamworth on Sunday, November 12, eager to beat their personal best lap times or even attempt to qualify for state and national swimming competitions.
It is anticipated the pool will stay open until the end of the swim season in April 2024.
