About Us

Each new team is greeted as a fresh challenge and as welcomed guests in our centre. Our goal is that high performance athletes enjoy each day spent at the centre and are able to get the most out of the superb water conditions available. Our drive is to meet the slightest needs of each team. Our staff works exclusively for each of the team, providing round the clock support. "Just let us know what you want". Free afternoons and day's off activities can be tailored to suit each team's wishes.
