Opening Summer 2021 - Join our Tribe
Ever since we got heavily involved with saving the Friary Grange, we have been determined to deal with the lack of available swimming time in Lichfield. Like many of us, caught by surprise when the 1st lockdown was announced a year ago, a Lichfield swim dad swim started looking for ways of keeping his daughters fitness up. He turned the garden and every spare mm into activity zones. To cut a long story short our friends nick named us Swim House.
The Dad, Neil, a hospitality designer of 30 years was suddenly out of work ....he researched the state of British swimming and identified a huge problem coming when we finally get back to some kind of new normal. Whilst we have amazing talent to celebrate like Adam Peaty, Luke Greenbank, and others there is not enough available swimming water in the UK to catch up with the missed swimming lessons. Swimming pools are uber expensive to create ,early estimates for the replacement friary grange are at circa £11.8 million. We set our selves a challenge to to deliver high quality swimming spaces for under £1 million. because he has had the time, Neil has spent every waking moment developing the Swim House concept .
Learning to swim is a life skill and its part of our National curriculum. Every child needs to have the opportunity to learn. Our mission is to build enough additional water and recruit enough coaches to tackle to learn to swim crisis.
