As swimming pools slowly begin to re-open, would you like to try something new in the water? writes Emma Sykes.
Bramley Mermaids are a fun and sociable group of women who meet weekly at Bramley Baths to exercise in the water using vintage-style, synchronised swimming techniques.
They are holding a “Meet the Mermaids” online event open to anyone interested in finding out more about their classes. Club members will talk about what happens in the pool, and how they’ve been practising during lockdown.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions about the classes and a chance to have a go at some dry land moves allowing you to ‘dip your toe’ in the water from the comfort of your own home.
This event will be held over Zoom at 8pm on Tuesday 28th July and you can choose just to watch, or have a go as well.
Everyone is welcome, although under 12s should be accompanied by an adult and
under 16s should have parental permission. When restrictions are lifted, classes at Bramley Baths are open to women and girls aged 12+, whilst kids sessions run during certain school holidays.
