Rackley Swimming opens new facility in Yamanto Central retail development
Rackley Swimming has announced the opening of its latest swim school in the Yamanto Central retail development in south east Queensland.
Opened on Friday, the state-of-the-art Rackley Swimming Yamanto is Rackley Swimming’s 27th site located across south east Queensland, with two heated Learn to Swim pools adjacent to other consumer-centric retail offerings within the new Yamanto Central shopping mall.
Rackley Swimming General Manager, Cameron Speechley says the centre is the “pinnacle” of more than 20 years’ experience providing local families quality swimming lessons, commenting “we are excited to launch this outstanding facility and we are extremely proud by the growth of our family run business from our one humble swim school on the Gold Coast to now 27 sites only 23 years later.
“This centre is designed around the ultimate focus on the customer. From climate-controlled pool areas, air-conditioned viewing areas, child’s play area, and swim shop, children and parents will receive a best in class experience, all while enjoying the benefits of swimming.”
The purpose-built facility is Rackley Swimming’s fourth shopping centre swim school site, following a shift to non-traditional retail settings in developing areas.
Advising that the launch will particularly benefit those who have fallen behind in swimming progression due to COVID lockdowns and restrictions closing centres in 2020, Rackley Swimming Chief Executive, Reece Rackley, noted “we are always striving to stay ahead of the curve, while keeping families at the centre of our business. This centre provides the perfect environment for children to learn vital life-long skills while practicing safer swimming.
“Ensuring the community has a revitalised and first-class facility to enjoy healthy, active lifestyles is at the core of our business and after many families missed out on lessons last year due to the pandemic, the facility could not have arrived at a better time.
“We could not pick a better location and neighbourhood to expand our family swim school.”
Located on the ground floor of Yamanto Central, the learn-to-swim facility features ample customer parking, easy facility access, generous viewing areas, and accommodating changing spaces for all members of the family.
Yamanto Central is located 45 kilometres south west of central Brisbane.
