Hailsham Leisure Centre is urging people to sign up and join in with the World’s Biggest Swim. This year’s Swimathon will take place on March 22 and 23 so there is plenty of time to set up a team or train for a personal challenge.

The event, which is supported by legendary swimmer Olympian Duncan Goodhew, will raise vital funds for Sport Relief.

Hailsham Leisure Centre said it is offering a range of distances and challenges to suit swimmers of all fitness levels. Individuals can choose from 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k distances, and there are also team challenge distances of 1.5k and 5k. Teams can split the distance however they choose, to cater for the strongest and weakest swimmers in the squad.
