Get Into Swimming

Feeling inspired by your Olympic Heroes? Well why not get down to your local pool and get into swimming.

I watched my brother do a lesson and I couldn't wait to get in the water - Liam Tancock, World Champion 50m Backstroke.If you fancy yourself as the next Rebecca Adlington or Liam Tancock, then get down to the pool and jump in on the action!

Not only is swimming a great way to meet new friends, be a part of fun activities and challenge yourself, it is also where all of our GB elite swimmers began.

And it's not just about swimming. There are challenging team sports such as water polo and synchro. And if you are into gymnastics then check out diving.

No matter whether you love splashing around in the shallow end or venturing out into the deep, there's something for you here.
