Dive in for that feeling…
Getting in the pool is proven to release endorphins and reduce stress – and it’s a great way of switching off.
Swimming is a great form of all-round exercise for every age and ability. You'll feel yourself get stronger!
1 in 3 people born in the UK this year will develop dementia in their lifetime. Swim for dementia research today.
