Finding a women-only swimming session
Sessions across the UK
In a country as diverse as the UK, it's no wonder women-only swimming sessions have proved such a success. For religious reasons, a large proportion of British women now seek keep-fit activities which do not force them to compromise their beliefs. Finding a women-only environment where showing limbs or hair is acceptable was once almost impossible; but now, swimming pools all over Britain have been made aware of this problem and are doing what they can to help.
What's more, women-only swimming is a great way to keep in shape if you're a little self-conscious or insecure about your body, or a fun way to meet like-minded women. For this reason, even more rural areas are beginning to provide women-only swimming opportunities.
Make it happen
You can find your nearest pool and its contact details on the right hand side of our Get Involved Page. With a quick phone call, you can get the lowdown on when and where your next women-only swimming session is, and perhaps bring a friend or family member along.
Despite the government's recent decision to stop funding free swimming, a lot of pools still offer it. Free swimming for over-60s and under-16s mean the local leisure centre is not only a healthy environment where women of all ages can be themselves, it's free too!
A lot of pools allow young children into women-only swimming sessions, so any mum can have a fun day out with the kids. There are several family games to play in the pool that are suitable for all ages and abilities, because that's what women-only swimming is really all about: fun!
