Hong Kong has 45 public indoor swimming pools and three times more in private facilities, for a city with 7.5 million people. That’s a lot of places to swim, and we are proud to feature Swimming as a sport for Gay Games 11. In partnership with the Hong Kong University (HKU), GGHK’s Aquatic events will be held at the HKU Henry Fok Swimming Pool, a gorgeous seaside open air swimming pool with stunning views across the Hong Kong archipelago.
