A new project aimed at encouraging more adults to start swimming has been launched at the iconic London Aquatics Centre.
Swim London 2016 offers those living in communities close to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park who are currently unable to swim, the opportunity to take part in subsidised local swimming courses.
Three 12-week swimming courses will be held at each of the participating pools in Waltham Forest, Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets, with Greenwich joining the programme in June. The programme aims to introduce over 200 adults to swimming, encouraging them learn as a group and support one another through the sessions.
The launch of Swim London 2016 coincides with 100 days to go until the start of the LEN European Aquatics Championships, which are being held at the London Aquatics Centre in May.
