Another group of SportsAble swimmers are taking part in a similar challenge, this time based in the warmer waters of the Magnet Leisure Centre swimming pool. Called the Lock to Lock Challenge they will do a ‘virtual’ lock-to-lock swim by completing the equivalent amount of lengths each week under the guidance of swimming coaches and with support from the SportsAble Volunteer Swim Team.
