Pool Closures 2013
13 February, 2013
I've been swimming in local pools since I can remember, and
there's no doubt that without the access I had to these pools I
would not have achieved what I have.
But it's not just about the elite level, it's really important
to have as many pools as possible for everyone to use. Swimming is
not only fun, but a great way for the whole family to exercise.
Unfortunately, I am currently aware of a lot of pool closures
around the UK, and whilst I can't get involved personally in every
fight to keep them, I do pledge my unwavering support to all those
battling to keep their local pools open.
Closing pools will have a terrible impact on not only the health
of the nation, but also the sporting legacy in this country. So I
urge everyone to pull together and make their voices heard in
opposing these closures.
