Swimming is one of the most popular forms of physical activity amongst the UK population.
Over 4 million people in the UK go swimming at least twice a month and the activity is most popular with the under 10s, with almost half of children swimming on a monthly basis. This popularity is not new, swimming has been in the top five leisure activities for years. But it is not all good news, there are still millions of people in the UK who are not confident to swim a length of the pool.
Although swimming is more popular in the summer, why not kick start the New Year and jump back into the pool. If you ask “Why?” we we say "Why not!" but if you need more, then here are some reasons to swim.
With 1,000s of public and private pools scattered around the UK there is likely to be a pool in your locality. Many of these will offer affordable pay-as-you go options or monthly membership.
So whether you are young or old, alone or with the family, for fun or for exercise, indoors or open water, swimming is good for everyone.
