Inspired by David Walliams?  Then why not Make a Big Splash in Aylesbury Vale

Swimmers across Aylesbury Vale will now be able to make a ‘Big Splash’ after local pools signed up to the nation’s biggest ever
swimming campaign.  If you have been inspired by David Walliams’ achievement in swimming the Thames, why not take to the water yourself in one of your local pools. You don’t have to swim 140miles along the Thames, but you could get fit using the brand new Swimfit sessions sponsored by British Gas in your local pool today!
 
Aqua Vale and Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Aylesbury and the Swan Pool in Buckingham have joined forces with British Swimming and the BBC to deliver the Big Splash campaign and inspire the nation to swim.
 
The pools will be offering a number of exciting activities over the coming months including Aqua Zumba and Swimfit, which offers gym-style programmes devised by experts at the Amateur Swimming Association.
 
Pool users can follow a programme for a number of weeks, focusing on weight loss, toning, fitness or general swimming ability.
 
The Swimfit sessions are available at the following venues:
·         Aqua Vale in Aylesbury – Monday, Wednesday and Friday (12.30pm to 1.30pm), Thursday (12.15pm to 1.15pm)
·         Swan Pool in Buckingham – Tuesday (8pm to 9pm) and Friday (12.15pm to 1.15pm)
·         Stoke Mandeville Stadium – Monday (12.30pm to 1.15pm) and Fridays (12.30pm to 1.15pm)
 
Aqua Zumba sessions are available at Stoke Mandeville Stadium on Thursday evenings at 7.45pm.
 
Double Olympic champion Becky Adlington is supporting the Big Splash campaign. She said: “Swimming is my life but just getting in the pool a couple of times a week is a really great way of getting active and staying healthy. I’m right behind anything that encourages people to take the plunge and swim more often.”
