Previous Statement: 20th March 2020.

“Swim Now has taken the decision to temporarily close its doors based on the concerns we have for the health and well being of our teachers and clients. The UK Government has advised social distancing and announced all leisure facilities, (including gyms and swimming pools) will be closed.

For anyone who’s lessons are affected by our decision to close, please rest assured, no Swim Now clients will lose out. We have applied credits to all accounts and we have removed the expiration date on all of our packages and gift vouchers.

We would like to wish everyone well in what we expect will be a testing period. As soon as we are ready to resume lessons we will deliver a personal call to arrange appointments. To keep informed, follow us on Facebook.

Please keep safe and well”
