Are you looking for an exciting summer activity? Consider jumping into one of Hong Kong’s public swimming pools – there are water slides, fountains and splash buckets galore! Plus they’re affordable: adult admission costs just HK$17 during weekdays (and public holidays); children under three get in free.
With all this heat, nothing beats taking a refreshing swim in the pool for relief. Hong Kong residents are fortunate to be blessed with 44 public swimming pools around the city to choose from; many provide kiddie pools and water slides; plus they tend to be cheaper than theme parks!
Whatever your budget may be, there’s sure to be a swimming pool to suit it! From premium above-ground models that can be set up quickly without professional installation to inflatable models you can inflate yourself in your own backyard; there’s something suitable for every home and budget – plus, by not needing expensive add-ons like pumps and covers you can save yourself some cash too.
Swimming offers more benefits than simply physical fitness; it can help relax and elevate mood as well. According to research published in Psychotherapy journal, regular swim classes reported lower anxiety/depression symptoms than those who didn’t take classes regularly.
Swimming can be both relaxing and social – both hallmarks of success for adults and kids. Joining a swimming club offers you an invaluable opportunity to meet like-minded individuals while forging lasting friendships.
As part of joining a swimming club, another advantage is having access to resources and tools to help make you a better swimmer – such as lessons from experienced instructors, tips and techniques for improving stroke technique, exclusive promotions and bonuses offered exclusively for members, etc. All of these can help you reach your fitness goals faster and more effectively than by going it alone.
Joining a swimming club can also help build self-esteem and confidence – particularly among children, who rely on positive role models to develop healthy body images and an identity sense. By learning to swim, children can boost their self-esteem while simultaneously developing valuable life skills that will serve them throughout their lives.
