We’re bringing the English Channel to our pool!

Swim the Cannel

You heard that right! From September to December we’re taking on the Aspire Channel Swim and we want you to get involved! It’s free to sign up, so set yourself a new challenge, get fit and make a difference.

This year, the Aspire Channel Swim is splashing down here at Chirk Leisure & Activity Centre. Take on the distance of the Channel (22 miles) over 12 weeks and boost your swim sessions – it’s a big challenge, but we know you can do it! You can swim the distance however you like from 9th September, so whether you want to swim all 22 miles by yourself or combine the distance with your friends or family, the Aspire Channel Swim is the perfect way to get fit for Christmas, and raise money for a fantastic charity.

Aspire is a national charity that provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury. Every year thousands of Aspire Channel Swimmers help fund their vital services: Aspire Housing, Assistive Technology, Independent Living Advisors and Welfare Benefits Advice and they couldn’t do it without swimmers just like you.

Make a splash here at Chirk Leisure & Activity Centre by signing up for free to the Aspire Channel Swim 2019 – sign up for free today at or pick up a registration form in reception.
