Wynberg Swimming

Swimming Overview

Swimming at Wynberg has steadily developed over the years, with the quality of swimmers produced at Wynberg going from strength to strength. Wynberg continues to break numerous records at inter-school galas, as well as at National Competitions. The Wynberg swimmers often compete at national and even international levels, such as former learners S Keyter and C Swanepoel, who have since gone on to represent South Africa and New Zealand respectively in the most recent Olympics. Wynberg Swimming forms a proud part of the schools sporting tradition, and we are confident that the years to come will only see our swimmers develop and grow from strength to strength.
