It's now 2017 and many adults across the UK can't swim - so why not try our adult lessons? Here's Philippa's story:
Philippa is a true inspiration to us and can be to you too. So read below her story:
"My name is Philippa (Pip) Miller and I have been asked to write a testimony for the adult swimming lessons at the Littlehampton Swimming & Sports Centre.
I started lessons 5 months ago, back in September. When I started, I couldn't swim and was fearful of deep water. I started in the beginner lessons and was encouraged and given fantastic support from the staff, helping me first build confidence then learn different swimming strokes and breathing techniques.
By half term, I had learnt enough to move into the adult intermediate class!
So it was with trepidation that I went into the "big pool" in my new class! Once again I was met by a lovely member of staff who has given me so much confidence, support and guidance, that not only am I confident enough to swim on my own in the deep end of the pool, but I am also diving!!
I had planned to stop lessons in December, but here I am, back for more in January 2017!! I can't see myself stopping now, I love swimming so much and that is absolutely down to the wonderful teaching staff, so thank you."
You can be the next Philippa by taking part in our weekly Adult Beginners and Adult Intermediate/Improver Classes. Defeat your fears like Philippa has and you will enjoy the results!
