Due to staff shortages because of COVID-19, we've made the decision to cancel this weekend’s Manu Competition.

Under the Red setting of the COVID-19 Protection Framework, Summer Pool Parties will be safely operated in line with government guidelines with capacity limits.

As part of our summer season, we're hosting manu competitions all through summer at our pools. Six heats will be held at our pools across the city ahead of the grand final in March at Jellie Park. 

We have four categories: under 13s, 13 to 18 years, open female and adult. 

Check out our other competitions across the city: 

  • March 13 – Jellie Park at midday (grand final)

At the end of the competition season, the top three queens or kings of the manu will be awarded an official trophy and prizes. Spot prizes will also be distributed throughout the competition.

Bring your whānau and friends – we'll see you there! 

Vaccine certificates are required to attend this event for anyone aged over 12 years and three months.
