British Swimming is working with the BBC to get the nation into the pool through a celebration of swimming called the Big Splash.
This is your chance to join the 13 million people in the UK who are already making a Big Splash, by taking part in swimming events across the country, finding out what your local pool has to offer, benefiting from fantastic money saving offers and winning some great prizes!
Some of your favourite BBC faces will be taking part, so keep an eye out on TV, radio and online. This really is the world’s biggest celebration of swimming, encouraging new people into the pool and helping those who already swim to have more fun, more often.
This is your invitation to join us, get involved and make a Big Splash! Click the button right to sign up now, and you could win some great prizes.
If you are looking for reasons or ways to make a Splash then check out our Why page first. There is something for everyone.
