KLIMSWIM OPENS IN RICHMOND
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new Richmond pool to the Klim Swim family. Located at the Punt Road Oval we share our water with the Richmond Football Club. The brand new four-lane 25-metre pool is an ideal learning environment for all ages. The new Swim School was launched on April 28 with members of the Richmond Tigers joining Michael Klim to try out the facilities and meet members of the public.
Speaking at the launch of Klim Swim at the Richmond FC Community Pool, Michael said he was delighted with Klim Swim’s association with the Tigers.
“We’ve both got the same values and goals in mind and we’re both very dedicated and professional outfits so I think this is going to provide not only the football club with the best facility, but also the community with the best-available Learn to Swim program,” said Michael. Klim Swim helps all swimmers to fulfil their potential, whatever their standard, and Michael hopes the Richmond pool might ultimately create a champion or two.
“It would be funny if Richmond FC produced an Olympic-standard swimmer to add to the list of great athletes that have emerged from this club during its history,” he said. This is the fourth operation in the Klim Swim licensed program and true to form we are offering lessons for people of all ages and abilities. The pool is also available for public swimming during restricted hours.
