Record level of entries for British Gas Great Swim Series

02 April, 2012

Aqua Sphere were delighted with the level of entries taking part in this year's British Gas Great Swim Series, Europe’s largest open water mass participation programme

Aqua Sphere is the official swim kit partner to the British Gas Great Swim Series, supplying a swim cap to every participant and making available its range of wetsuits and goggles.

The series comprises five open water events and starts with the British Gas Great London Swim on 26th May at the Royal Victoria Dock. Last year’s series attracted a record number of participants – 22,000 - across all five events - and participation numbers are currently ahead of last year, with the largest swim at Windermere now nearly full.

Martin Newton, Sales & Marketing Manager for Aqua Sphere, says: “We are delighted with  the numbers of people signing up to do their own Great Swim this year. This series has gone from strength to strength and we echo its commitment to introducing more people to the challenge and enjoyment of outdoor swimming. We look forward to a great year for swimming."
