Swimming Equipment...

Post by AndyD » Wed, 04 Apr 2012 6:18 pm

Hi All,

My wife is soon starting swim lessons for kids, and we are looking for some equipment – specifically 1m x 3m floating rubber mats.

Any ideas of some local swim suppliers?

Thanks

Andy.

Are you talking about something like this?

I don't think it is common around here, not even in aquatic shops. But if you intend to use this in public swimming pools, it is not allowed actually.

I know they don't allow them in my condo pool either, if they allow these then people start getting silly and bringing in boats, we had a family with a 3 man dinghy in the pool one time, paddling it up and down the pool, suffice to say they were swiftly told to remove it!

So maybe check with the pool you are going to as to what you can and can't use there first :)
