Swim for a Mile 2024


We are thrilled to participate in this year’s Swim for a Mile event. We are pleased to announce that we will be providing training programs at all three of our locations: LeisureWorld Bishopstown, LeisureWorld Churchfield, and Douglas Swimming Pool. The final event is scheduled for April 9th 2024 at LeisureWorld Bishopstown, offering both a one-mile and a half-mile option!

Swim Ireland’s Swim For A Mile initiative aims to encourage people to get back into the pool and become confident life-long swimmers. Swim Ireland coaches have written a swimming programme, that enables those who can swim a little to swim a mile in just 10 weeks. The cost is €150 for a 10 weeks training course and booking can be made via the links below.
