Provinces

The SAASU provinces of South African swimming evolved over time, as some split and other left - Rhodesia left in 1980, and South West Africa in 1990, while the Vaal Triangle was only constituted in the mid-1970's. In 1994 all the existing provinces were dissolved, and 9 new entities created. As a result the traditional provincial sporting governing bodies were also dissolved. With the new national governing body - known as Swimming South Africa - barely acknowledging the past and failing to maintain historical information, the new "provncial" governing bodies have also mostly neglected to include any history on their website.  Only the former Transvaal - now Central Gauteng Aquatics, their neighbours in Pretoria - now known as Northern Tigers Swimming, and the Vaal Triangle Swimming Association - have done so. Eastern Province has a honours board at the Newton Park pool listing all their champions and administrators.
