LIVEN UP YOUR POOL SES­SION WITH OUR PICK OF TECH­NIQUE IM­PROV­ING KIT

If you’re get­ting bored of plod­ding up and down at your lo­cal pool, a quick shop­ping trip could be all you need. There are all kinds of swim toys on the mar­ket and we’ve pick eight of the sim­plest and best.

But be­fore you rush off to your lo­cal sports shop with your wal­let in hand, it’s worth know­ing that some pools don’t al­low the use of cer­tain swim toys. For ex­am­ple, hand pad­dles, fins and snorkels are of­ten banned at lo­cal au­thor­ity leisure cen­tres, where strin­gent health and safety rules pre­vail. You can usu­ally use them at gyms, ho­tels and school pools or in club ses­sions. Aside from that, swim toys are a great ad­di­tion to your swim bag.
