This Girl Can is a celebration of women who are getting active and doing their thing, no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. Since 2015, the campaign has been inspiring women and girls all across England to live more active lifestyles.

This Girl Can Swim sessions have been developed using the ideas of This Girl Can, to create a friendly and welcoming place for women to enjoy swimming. No matter what your experience levels, you’re welcome at the sessions and you can wear whatever’s comfortable for you, whether that’s a swimming costume or shorts and a T-shirt.

The sessions are all about making you feel at home in the pool and its surroundings, with staff on-hand to help if you need it, and a relaxed atmosphere to make sure nobody feels like they don’t fit in.

There are currently regular This Girl Can Swim sessions running in Maidstone, Medway and Sittingbourne. Check out our activity finder below for more information on each of the sessions.
