Synchronised swimming (or officially known as Artistic Swimming) is a low-impact, fun, team sport for all ages and genders. It was first included in the Olympic Games in 1984, and has since evolved and expanded. Swimmers can compete in the following events: solo, duet, team, combination routine, highlight routine and mixed duet.

Synchronised swimming is about expressing yourself in the water and challenging yourself with new creative movements each training session.

Synchronised swimming trains all muscles in your body, and learning new movements is great for your mind too.
