Women only swimming

We are running women-only swimming sessions as part of the This Girl Can Swim initiative. This is a Sport England's campaign that is "a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get".

These This Girl Can Swim sessions give you a chance to get advice, socialise and enjoy yourself in a supported and comfortable setting. You are also welcome to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable including t-shirts and shorts.

Session times

These sessions take place every Friday from 9.30am to 10.30am at Hoo Sports Centre. There will be a member of our team available on pool side to offer advice and support.

There's no booking required, but if you want more information before coming along, please email medwaysport@medway.gov.uk


Your first session will be completely free and each session after costs just £3 per person (£1.50 for members and to holders of Medway Free Swimming Over 60's cards). You’ll even get a free cup of tea after your swim.
