SPARTA ‘learn to swim’ sessions were already underway before the launch day and so swim coaches Hywel Evans and Bex Lodwig used the opportunity to put on demonstration sessions showcasing some of St Christopher’s most accomplished swimmers. The new viewing gallery gives visitors a panoramic view of the pool and the swimmers in action and was a focal point of the launch day for many families eager to dive in! The SPARTA swim programme is for all abilities and caters for the demand for quality swimming lessons that take place in a top class facility. ‘The learn to swim programme is proving very popular,’ said Director, Gareth Holloway, ‘and we have had lots of enquiries about adult swimming lessons and general community use.’ On one of Bahrain’s cooler days in January, the indoor pool facility was the place to be with parents and children watching the talented St Chris swimmers being put through their paces.
SPARTA ‘Learn to Swim’ sessions run Sunday to Wednesday each week.
