The purpose of the Dive In campaign

Speedo’s latest survey results made for worrying reading with two thirds of swimmers unable to swim for more than four lengths and a massive 1 in 3 adults admit they are not confident in the water.

These findings have prompted Speedo to offer 10,000 free swimming sessions to adults from May to October 2016 . 50 separate events are being organised with Total Swimming to take the initiative around the country. The free sessions have been designed by ex-professional swimmers James Goddard, Ian Hulme and Harry Needs.
