What will I need?

What happens if I can’t swim?
Do not worry if you cannot swim. A physiotherapist will be with you in the water at all times and a lifeguard will be on the poolside. If you are fearful of water you can exercise in the shallow end and hold onto the hand rails.
What if I don’t own a bathing suit?
