Swimming in 50m pool - a rare event in the UK!

Recently had a short break with family in Bath. One of the highlights - apart from my brother's baking - is always swimming in the Team Bath 50m pool at Bath University. This time I was really struck by the presence of Swim Smooth on poolside: several public swimmers were had taken along Swim Smooth sets, printed off the 'guru', and were following them ardently. And then in the neighbouring lane I heard the University tri club coach - a self-confessed follower of Swim Smooth - telling her athletes to (what else?!) 'bubble-bubble-breathe'! Of course, Bath Uni just happens to be the alma mater of Paul Newsome, founder and head coach of Swim Smooth - but my guess is that it is the effective, straightforward approach of Swim Smooth which is seeing its influence spread so widely like this, rather than Paul's lingering (and growing) legacy...Swim Smooth!

 Team Bath's 50m 8-lane pool is a centre of excellence for swimming - and a place where Swim Smooth methods are prominent
