Swimming & Diving

Want an all-round wonder sport? Try swimming

Want an activity that can burn calories and improve your muscle tone and strength? That can help your heart and lungs? A sport that improves your fitness and flexibility without straining joints or muscles? That can make you feel happier? Try going for a swim. Swimming is the ultimate lifelong sport – fun for babies and toddlers, easy on the joints for older people, as energetic or relaxing as you want it to be.
