South Woodham Ferrers Pool

By holding the Swimarathon here we have not only been able to raise money for charities but also promote the pool's facilities for the larger community. This is a fun event which allows everyone to support charity at the same time.

The Rotary Swimarathon committee is dedicated to organising the event and trying to make sure that all of our supporters are well informed about it and will find it a fun event to be involved in. We have online team booking in, as well as using letter and telephone systems.
