Australians set to reclaim fun this summer with the Swimply relaunch

Sam McDonagh, Managing Director for Australia at Swimply

More pools in more locations, that’s what people across the country can expect as part of the Swimply‘s Australian relaunch announced. A marketplace for swimming pools, Swimply is giving Australians across the country the chance to reclaim fun this summer and escape locally with affordable access to luxurious private pools that can be rented by the hour.

How is Swimply bringing back the summer pomp?

With cost of living pressures starting to bite, two years of Covid induced uncertainty and La Nina impacted Summers, Aussies have been deprived of Summer fun. Swimply provides an affordable way for people to get together, swim and escape locally with family and friends.

From just $25 per hour, Australians can bring together their family and friends and rent a private pool, with many venues on the platform also providing access to BBQ facilities and pool toys, making it the perfect (and affordable) ‘daycation’ or local escape.

Pool owners can now earn extra income by becoming a Host and renting out their pool on Swimply, with many hosts finding that the money made on Swimply not only covers maintenance expenses, but also provides them with a lucrative side hustle.

What is the mission behind Swimply?

According to newly appointed Managing Director for Australia, Sam McDonagh, average pool maintenance costs in Australia are between AUD $2400 – $4800 per year – an amount that pool owners can reasonably expect to cover by listing their pool on Swimply.

“Swimming is the number one rated activity for families, yet 87% of Aussies don’t have access to a pool. Our goal is for every Australian to have access to a private pool and for every homeowner to be able to share spaces they are passionate about,” McDonagh said.

“With cost of living pressures starting to impact every aspect of our lives, Swimply provides an opportunity for Australians to afford little moments of luxury; whether it be a family fun day by the pool, friends enjoying a splash on a warm day, or some well deserved R&R.”

Swimply is available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Perth, Adelaide and other areas. The app is available on Android and iOS. For more visit the website.
