Wynberg, Cape Town

About Wynberg Military Aquatic Centre

The Southern Suburbs’ biggest secret is a swimming pool just around the corner from Chelsea Village.

It is one of few public, heated and covered swimming pools open in Cape Town during winter (the only other one is the baths on Long Street). And hardly anyone knows about it. Probably because it is rather difficult to find - not even those who work on the military base know about the pool on the premises, open to the public.

The aquatic centre is run by a swimming school called Swimlab who often have groups of school children from the area in for swimming lessons. But anyone is welcome - although the pool has only four lanes, so consulting with Swimlab ahead of time might be a good idea if you are hoping for a lane to yourself.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking it is a family swimming pool; it is pretty much a training facility with change rooms.

Wynberg Military Base includes a floodlit football stadium, tennis courts, the swimming pool and a huge sports hall hired for sports events, like karate tournaments.

Find it: on Wynberg Hill, corner of Scoble and Buren Roads, Wynberg Military Base 10am-3pm daily. It is not difficult to get into the base as the booms are seldom manned
