It's great for your health, it's a fun activity and most importantly it's the only sport that can save your life..
Whether you're thinking of learning for the first time or returning to swimming after a few years - whether you'd like to join a club and try competitive swimming or just get in the water for leisure, take the plunge and Go Swim!
Synchronised Swimming used to be known as 'water ballet' and this is a good starting point to see the sport because routines are essentially athletic movements performed in water and choreographed to music.
Water polo is a fast-paced sport played by two teams in a swimming pool. There are goals at each end of the pool and, similar to other sports such as football, the winner of the game is the team that scores the most goals by getting the ball between the posts.
