GLL are holding open days at many of their centres on the weekend of the 23rd-24th July in order to drum up the excitement for Rio, and also inspire the younger generation to become more active. GLL have teamed up with I Am Team GB and ITV to promote this event and encourage as many people to take part as possible.
All open days are different depending on the centre, but will be similar in the fact that all events will be free, fun and active! The London Aquatics Centre is focusing on swimming and diving with taster sessions going on throughout the afternoon.
1-2.30pm – Swimming Taster Sessions
3-5pm – Diving Taster Sessions
Previous Olympian Daniel Fogg (Long Distance Swimmer) will be attending the event from 12.30pm. He will be talking about his past career, his experience of competing at the Olympics and what he is doing now. There will also be a chance to ask him questions and hope he inspires children and adults alike to take up aquatics.
Whether you’re around for the whole day, or just want to drop in for an hour, these open days are a great opportunity to try something new, or continue practising an activity you already play. It can be a family occasion, or people can come on their own – a great chance to meet new people! Whatever your age, there is something for everyone at these open days.
