This Girl Can Swim

 

Swimming is the perfect way to clear your head, wind down from a busy day and just so happens to be brilliant for your body. That’s why we’ve teamed up with This Girl Can.

Our female swim sessions have been designed to provide a relaxing environment where you can swim at your own pace, meet new people and get the most out of your swim for both your body and mind. Come by and give it a go!

 

 We he are providing all of this for the price of a swim and you don’t need to book:

  • Female support will be available on poolside including advice on technique
  • High powered hair dryers in the changing room
  • Music to listen to while you swim
  • Hooks on poolside to hang up your towel
  • Free tea and coffee after your first session in our dedicated social area to meet other women just like you
