Pop Up Swimming Pool Coming to Thamesmead

Residents are being encouraged to test the water and dip their toe in a new, 12 x 6 metre, pop up swimming pool which will be available to school children and residents of Thamesmead, at Sporting Club Thamesmead from 28 April.

The Mayor of London’s Make a Splash campaign is in partnership with Sporting Club Thamesmead and Trust Thamesmead as part of the Peabody Group and the London Borough of Bexley and delivered by Total Swimming and Amateur Swimming Association (ASA).

Peabody’s Chief Executive, Stephen Howlett said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for school children in Thamesmead to learn to swim. We hope it will help make children safe in and around water, and encourages them to keep fit and healthy, if not through swimming, then through one of the many other fantastic activities which take place at Thamesmead’s newest sport and leisure venue, Sporting Club Thamesmead.”

Make a Splash is a ground-breaking programme delivered by Total Swimming, in conjunction with the ASA, as part of the Mayor of London’s Olympic Legacy Programme. The programme is designed to ensure a lasting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with the aim of ensuring Londoners benefit from inspirational projects that significantly increase participation in sport and physical activity, as well as using sport to tackle social issues.

Organisations like Sporting Club Thamesmead make a huge difference by getting involved in initiatives such as ‘Make a Splash’; helping the local community to get safe, improving local swimming statistics and hopefully inspiring other schools and organisations across Greater London to take the same initiative.

Make a Splash has, to date, taught more than 25,000 children to swim across the U.K. via their pop up pools.

To book swimming lessons at our pop up pool, log on to the Total Swimming website.
