A SOCIAL approach to swimming is being promoted at Portishead Open Air Pool.

Under the North Somerset Council initiative, Back to Sport 4 Life, masters swimming classes are being put on for people wanting to try out swimming again but do not feel ready to join a club.

For people aged 16 and over, two programmes will be put on at the open air pool.

One programme will run every Saturday for 10 weeks at 9-10am from May 7 until July 16 and the other will run every Monday at 6.30-7.30pm from May 9 to July 18.

All instruction is taken by a qualified instructor who will help with stroke techniques, improving fitness and also offer advice on how to become a competitive swimmer.

The 10-week course costs £25 to be paid at the first session or before.
