Sport & leisure online
Just like the Premier's Roadmap to Recovery, we will be taking a staged approach to reopening our facilities to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our patrons and staff. We are delighted to announce that from Tuesday 19 May 2020, some Aquamotion services will be up and running again. Further sport and leisure facilities will be opening in phase 3 (to be confirmed). In the meantime, if you’ve visited either our Aquamotion Facebook page or Kingsway Indoor Stadium Facebook page you’ll know that we’re working hard behind the scenes to make sure we can keep you mentally and physically healthy during this closure period.

Thought you needed a pool to learn how to swim? Swim schoolers, look no further than our series of weekly videos showcasing skills for you to practice in the comfort of your own home!
This week, it’s Survival Backstroke. You can practise this in front of a mirror. Make sure your arms don’t go above your shoulders and practise your glide for the count of 3. Like all survival strokes, this is about using as little energy as possible so you can slow down and do it carefully. Try lifting one foot as you bring your arms up to practise the timing of your kick if you have the balance for it!
