We are a small swimming club aimed at people who have a disability or mobility problems. This could be long term or short term.
We have been established since 1966. We meet at Brookes sports, Oxford Brookes University, Harcourt Campus, Botley, Oxford. ox2 9at. We meet every 2 weeks on a Sunday morning, 9:00-11:30. we have a hoist if needed. Loads of swimming aids. we are a very friendly group some people swim for the session others just stay in the pool for a short period to do exercises. Some just get in and stand and chat. It is up to you.
The water is normally warmer than a public pool. Brookes provide lifeguard cover. There are also volunteer helpers to assist in any way we can. They are not qualified carers. There are a couple of large changing rooms for wheel chairs. We also have tea coffee after wards if you wish. We also have a picnic in the summer and a Christmas dinner.
We are not a charity. We are funded by our members. All the equipment pool hire and insurance is covered by our membership fees. The membership for 2018 was £57 per person. The club is run by volunteers only. Most of which are members. We are always looking for volunteers both Male and Female.
Our next swim is 05/08/18. then every 2 weeks after that. There is free parking for 2hrs. Please read the terms and conditions on the notice as you have to obtain a ticket on arrival. If you are interested just turn up for a chat or a trial. you could also contact me Nick on firstname.lastname@example.org
