The start of something extraordinary

  • Track Your KMs

    Pools are closed and from most recent lockdown laws, swimming in public places such as beaches is banned. Your usual means of exercise is swimming but you can't swim? You can, however, Swim at Home! There are a number of ways you can keep fit and active during the lockdown. We want to create some healthy competition, getting swimmers and clubs to track their kilometres each week.
