COME AND JOIN OUR FEMALE SWIMMING SESSIONS AT TONBRIDGE POOL
Swimming sessions for women
Women and girls from across the borough are being invited to attend the female-only swimming session at Tonbridge Swimming Pool.
This friendly and supportive session is inspired by the hugely successful #thisgirlcan campaign. Developed by Sport England, the campaign is a celebration of active women and aims to help women overcome the fear of judgement that prevents many women and girls from being active.
The This Girl Can Swim session takes place at Tonbridge Swimming Pool every Thursday from 8 - 10pm. A female assistant is on poolside during the session to provide for help, support and motivation.
Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise around, providing a whole body workout. As well as providing an effective cardiovascular workout, swimming strengthens and tones all of the major muscle groups. As a low impact exercise, swimming is suitable for those who need to take it easy on their joints or are recovering from injury.
Come along and get fit and make some friends too. For more information, please call 01732 367449 or email Natalie.email@example.com.

LARKFIELD AND TONBRIDGE POOL OFFICIALLY AMONG TOP PERFORMING UK LEISURE CENTRES
Larkfield joins Tonbridge Pool at one of the top performing leisure centres in the UK
Not one, but two tmactive leisure centres are now officially among the top performing leisure centres in the UK.
Larkfield Leisure Centre has joined Tonbridge Swimming Pool to become two of just 12 UK leisure centres rated outstanding by the leading quality assessor for sport and leisure. More than 650 leisure centres are registered with Sport England's Quest scheme, but only this small group of 12 has achieved its toughest assessment.
Tonbridge Swimming Pool achieved the prestigious accolade in 2015 and now Larkfield has followed suit after a rigorous scrutiny of its facilities, programmes and staff.
The Quest scheme is designed to ensure that sports and leisure centres continuously improve to meet the needs of their customers and staff. The outstanding award shows that both Larkfield Leisure Centre and Tonbridge Swimming Pool are delivering the highest core standards, from the hygiene and cleanliness of the centres and their facilities to health and safety to the quality of their programmes and general service. However, the key assessment measures the impact and outcomes that the centres are having on the health and wellbeing of local people.
The news comes as Tonbridge & Malling Leisure Trust celebrates its third year managing sport and leisure facilities on behalf of the council.
