      • The early 1970s proved a critical period for the club. The clubrooms were not being fully utilised but of course still had to be maintained to health regulation standards. Membership had declined. There was little supervision of the use of the clubrooms at weekends. The public were using the rooms without making any contribution to the upkeep costs. Learn to swim classes at the beach were spasmodic and were becoming less popular. Lessons ceased altogether at Hataitai Beach in 1972 after 61 years.

    • Hataitai Swimming Club - 1940 to 1970

      • The Second World War robbed the Hataitai Bathing Club of young men and women. However the club continued to operate a learn to swim programme. Community social activity began to flourish after the cessation of hostilities in 1945. The energy of comradeship and togetherness learned during the previous six years greatly assisted the rejuvenation of clubs such as the Hataitai Bathing Club.
