Building has begun on a new swimming centre project that is due to open in Leamington Spa this Autumn.
The new centre is reported to be worth £750,000 and is located in the Queensway area. The construction is being overseen by Swim Works, a sister company to the local business Little Splashers, which has provided swimming lessons in Warwick and Leamington for the past 10 years.
The pool is set to measure 12 metres by 5 metres, and was designed to offer a more tranquil experience to those individuals who are overwhelmed by large and noisy swimming centres. The swimming pool will also be used for aqua therapy sessions – an increasingly popular form of water based treatment and exercise that is often used for relaxation, fitness or rehabilitation purposes.
Christian Wilson, who founded Little Splashers alongside his wife Joanne ten years ago, opened the first Swim Works centre in Rugby. The couple we awarded the Small Business People of the Year award with FM Radio for 2015 and 2016 in recognition of their hard work and dedication.
When commenting on the new centre, Mr Wilson stated: “We used to hire swimming pools to run our classes but for a variety of reasons we decided to open our own centres so that we could control the entire operation – right down to what water temperature to use. We use virtually no chemicals and have a high filtration system so it’s almost like swimming in fresh water – ideal for those suffering from allergies, eczema, asthma and sensitive skin.”
“We have ten years’ experience of providing swimming lessons, it is our real passion and love.”
