A pink swimming pool for International Women’s Day

05 March 2012

Women from Solihull will have the opportunity to swim in a bright pink pool for free on 8 March to help celebrate International Women’s Day.

North Solihull Sports Centre will be offering a variety of free swim sessions including, aqua aerobics and adult swimming lessons. As well as great for health and fitness, sessions will be really fun and show how swimming for 30 minutes each week can help you to remain motivated and give you that extra boost.

Outside of the pool guests can take part in a range of exercise classes and after they’ve worked up a sweat, have the chance to relax and unwind with a variety of pampering beauty treatments. The Leisure Centre will also be offering free swimming vouchers to everyone that attends, plus there will be the chance to win great prizes through Solihull Active’s Facebook page.

Sessions will start at 6pm to 9pm, for more information about the International Women’s Day event please contact the North Solihull Sports Centre reception on 0121 770 3822.

Throughout 2012 British Swimming and the BBC are working together to get the UK into the pool through a celebration of swimming called the Big Splash.

British Swimming’s Big Splash provides an opportunity for people of all ages and abilities from across the country to join the 13 million people in the UK who are already making a splash, by taking part in swimming events, finding out what pools have to offer, benefitting from fantastic money saving offers and winning some great prizes.

For more information about the Big Splash, click here.

Swimmers can also challenge themselves to swim a mile in the pool but signing up to the Big Splash Mile for Sport Relief, which will take place over the Swimathon Weekend, 27-29 April. Money raised will help people living incredibly tough lives here in the UK and across some of the world’s poorest countries.
