Faced with a full-blown mid-life crisis, accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) joins an all-male group of synchronised swimmers, discovering that making patterns in a pool can, for a couple of hours at least, smooth out the bumps in his work and marriage. Initially keeping their personal lives in the locker, the ramshackle squad and coach Susan (Charlotte Riley) slowly learn to reveal their inner lives, as well as their paunches. But can they get their lives and routines in sync as they embark on an unlikely journey to Milan to compete in the World Championship?
Out To Swim, London’s largest Masters swimming club, are running a free synchronised swimming taster session for men and women. The session is part of the Synchro Challenge – an initiative to bring men into the sport.
Recently approved for men at national and international level, synchro combines swimming, dance, gymnastics and athleticism in a routine performed to music. Although the session is primarily aimed at increasing male participation in synchronised swimming, it is also suitable for and open to female swimmers.
During the session, you will learn basic water skills and learn a short routine to music. The session will take place at 7pm on Monday 3rd July 2017 at the Queen Mother Sports Centre, Victoria.
The session is free and open to over 18-year-olds with basic swimming skills. No experience of synchronised swimming is required.

OTS Angels Tommy (left) and Chris (right) were invited to open the Kings Cross Pond. A temporary open air pool in the heart of the Kings Cross redevelopment, Of Soil and Water: King’s Cross Pond Club was conceived as, and intended to be, a temporary art installation. The 40 metre fresh water public bathing pond is the first of its kind in the UK and is purified using submerged plants to filter the water and is surrounded by flowers and plants. The aim is to allow visitors to have the experience of bathing in the middle of a construction site, to encourage people to think about the relationship between nature and the urban environment, and the changing nature of undeveloped spaces. Its temporary nature added to its specialness.
