Improve your pool skills with new ‘tag’

A wristband data monitoring system - for swimmers - is set to be rolled out at Ripley and Heanor’s leisure centres following its success in Alfreton.

The Swimtag, funded by Sport England, contains a transmitter which can detect and record your freestyle, backstroke, breast stroke and butterfly lengths. The data is uploaded to your own personal online account when you return the wristband.

Ask at your leisure centres for details.
