Who we are. 

We have over 18 years of management expertise.

City Venue Management was founded by the Rackley family, who have been managing and programming aquatic venues since 1951.

We are now one of the largest providers of aquatic education in Queensland and operate some of the busiest leisure facilities in the region.

The history of City Venue Management as we know it today began in 1998 with a single swim school at the Burleigh Beach Baths. 

The Rackley Family Swim Schools portfolio of facilities expanded and following a merger with BlueFit, in 2009 the company was responsible for 32 facilities. 

In 2012, the merger dissolved and the Rackley Group then managed 14 facilities in Queensland. The company was given a new name and a new structure with three core businesses – Rackley Swim Schools, City Aquatics, and City Health Clubs.

These business continue to grow, with the first purpose-built City facility to open in Parkinson, Brisbane, later in 2016.
