More New Zealanders have learned to swim with Hilton Brown Swimming than any other swim school in the country.
Since 1973, Hilton and his team have been dedicated to the essential task of helping people of all ages to become confident, competent swimmers who look great in the water.
Hilton represented New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games in Jamaica in 1966, where he enjoyed success in the 220 yd backstroke and earned a bronze medal in the medley relay. In 1969 he found himself in South Africa, where he set up and ran a learn-to-swim programme in Johannesburg for three years. When Hilton returned to New Zealand in 1973 he put his swim school experience to work in Auckland and established his first learn-to-swim programme.
