    This Girl Can Swim

    • Are you a woman of any age?
    • Do you feel like you should exercise, you know about the benefits - but you don’t usually take part in sport or exercise?
    • Do you feel self-conscious about showing your body? Are you intimidated by ‘sporty’ environments or nervous that you’ll be judged for not being fit or ‘good’ enough? Does this fear stop you getting down to your local pool?
    • Do you have many priorities in your life, and need sport and exercise to fit in with them?

    This Girl Can Swim is about liberating and motivating women to do more exercise in a way that works for them.

    This Girl Can Swim is here to inspire women to dive, splash, move and prove that the fear of judgement is a barrier that can be overcome. We want to celebrate the fact that women come in all shapes, sizes and levels of ability. It really doesn’t matter if you are an unconfident swimmer or an expert. What matters is you’re a woman and you’re swimming.

    We have teamed up with Sport England to provide sessions in our pools that have been specifically designed with you in mind. Your experience will start from the moment you walk through our door, being greeted by our trained Activator who will guide you through how to get the most out of your swim session.

    Our Activator will show you to the changing rooms and explain how to access the pool; you will be given flip-flops to wear if you wish to keep your feet dry while you make your way onto pool side and a box in which you can store your glasses or other essential items that you may wish to keep with you. There will be a hook on poolside for you to hang your towel so bring it with you and hang it near the steps, no more feeling chilly when you get out!

    Our Activators will stay on the poolside throughout the duration of your swim and give you help and encouragement if you need it or simply be someone you will get to know in the pool. You will find our changing rooms spotlessly clean with a new high powered hair dryer, free for you to use, and tea or coffee will be available at the end of your session, so if you wish, you can get to know likeminded ladies taking part in the session.

    So what are you waiting for? Book your place in the pool today and we very much look forward to meeting you.
