The Big Splash is the world's biggest celebration of swimming and we've joined forces with the BBC to help spread the word. Fancy helping us make a splash? Then read on.
The aims of the Big Splash are simple – to encourage new people into the pool and help those who already swim to swim more often.
You can help us to make the Big Splash a great success by helping to convert all those people who are inspired to get swimming to have a great experience in your pool!
