Combined Services Swimming
Led by the Army Swimming Union and coordinated by our network of Physical Training
Instructors, we will be manoeuvring 5,000 combined service personnel, families and
children towards swimming pools as part of a series of community swims for World
Swim Against Malaria.
We will have swims in the UK, in Cyprus, Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands and on
Ascension Island in the middle of the South Atlantic. There will be a number of
open water swims too, albeit in the warmer climes in December 2005!
On 3rd December 2005 itself we are planning to fill eight lanes of a pool for a
‘fun-competitive’ swim with teams from among others the Army, Air Force, Navy, Police,
Fire Service, Ambulance Service and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).
Try telling the teams it won't be competitive though...
