The new swimming pool in Yemmekere in Mangalore will be inaugurated by Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on November 24, 2023. The pool was constructed at a cost of ₹24.94 crore by Mangalore Smart City Limited under Mangalore Smart City Mission.

Nearly 800 swimmers from across India are likely to take part in the 19th National Masters Swimming Championship to be held between November 24 and 26 at the Yemmekere international swimming pool in Mangalore. Tejomaya, working president of the championship organising committee, said that nearly 700 swimmers have registered for the championship so far. The last date for registration has been extended to November 15. We are expecting nearly 800 swimmers to take part.

The competition will be held in the 10-lane 50m X 25m pool where the depth varies from 2.2 metres to 1.4 metres. There is also a five-lane practice pool of 25m X 10m with depth of 2.2 metres. There is also a kids’ pool of 13.8m X 10m with depth of 1.2 metres. All the three pools are on the second floor of the swimming pool complex.

The mezzanine floor houses dormitories for male and female competitors, a gymnasium, changing rooms, toilets, lockers, administration office, referee rooms, and space for dope-testing, sports medicine and physiotherapy. There is parking space in the basement. The new complex has come up on three acres of Yemmekere ground.
