All ages and disabilities can come to receive instruction on learning to swim or just swim and have fun in the water. We have a hoist and special equipment to make your swim enjoyable, whilst qualified lifeguards are on duty to ensure your safety and peace of mind. It’s amazing to see the transformation of those normally confined to a wheelchair when they enter the pool and can move under their own power and enjoy the freedom of the water. In addition to exercising and moving in water, members can learn to swim for enjoyment or take part in competitive swimming. In the water the ratio for all our swimmers is 1:1 where necessary. Aqua Aerobics sessions are also held once a month. Full disabled change and hoist to access the pool are readily available.

Half hour sessions with a Qualified Gym Instructor and volunteers put members to the test. Members are given an introduction to the equipment with a personal fitness assessment and individual exercise programme. This helps to build fitness and muscle tone, as well as providing a boost to your confidence and self-esteem.
We use an indoor Bowls Hall and play from one end. A team of bowlers meet every week to learn new skills, either working towards a competition, or just for fun! Volunteers and many bowlers join in to offer advice and help out.
ACTIVITIES IN THE TYLNEY ROOM
The Tylney Room is the meeting point for members that offers a place to socialise with friends or play boards games like Boccia, Table Tennis and Kurling, or to just listen to music and have a drink and snack. Members can also take part in craft based activities such as making cards and jewellery, Bingo, Darts, Karaoke, Film night, Dance and our weekly raffle.
The Swans also organise a range of social events including barbecues, special event evenings, workshops and outings. We aim to create events that enrich and empower the lives of our members and help them achieve independence.
