On 4th September Oasis played host to a Speedo 'Dive In' event, one of a series of events over the Summer months, delivered by Total Swimming, to encourage people to get back into the pool and swim regularly. 160 keen participants attended the event, receiving hints and tips from expert coaches to help improve their techniques and build their confidence. Former GB Olympic Swimmer and European Champion, Lizzie Simmonds, shared her expertise on the day, providing guidance and inspiration to attendees. 

All 'Dive In' sessions are free of charge, one participant said, “The event was fantastic, I am not much of a swimmer but this session has renewed my enthusiasm for swimming!”

Several Better Leisure Centres have taken part in this initiative, running since May, with the final events scheduled in October. Click here if you missed the event at Oasis, but are keen to take part in one of the later events.
