Noord Transvaal Pools and Places

Fom many years the home of aquatic sports in the Northern Transvaal was at the Hillcrest pool in Pretoria. The province hosted their first South African swimming and water polo championships back in 1906 at the indoor pool in Vermeulen street. The British influence in Pretoria was very evident in the construction of such a pool, barely 4 years after the Boer War had ended.
