It is one form of exercise that allows anyone who has a disability to benefit from the freedom provided by the water.

The club benefits from an excellent group of volunteer helpers who are available to provide assistance and support to all members, as required. They organize fun activities in the second half of the session for those who wish to join in.

The club has a comprehensive range of specialized equipment, including a wide range of floatation aids and a hoist to assist members in and out of the water.
