The proposals we’ve developed incorporate flexible facilities that can support a wide range of activities – from fun activities through to a high-level of competition. There is something for everyone. If such facilities are programmed effectively, there should be no need for anyone to feel excluded. For example, a 50m community pool (with a moveable partition and variable depth) should allow for public lane swimming and/or leisure swimming throughout the day, even when part of the pool is being used for e.g. swimming lessons, club training or aqua aerobics. Having the ability to host competitive events is important, too – it generates revenue, attracts new users, and allows local teams to advance through competitive leagues. This allows local athletes to develop their talent and achieve their potential.
