Amateur Swimming Association

Swimming is the number one participation sport, with over 20m people swimming every year. However, one in five people are unable to swim which is why the English national governing body for swimming, the ASA, is dedicated to giving even more people the opportunities to swim for health and for fun. The Local Government Channel visited several pools in England to see what impact swimming is having across all ages and all communities.
