Swimmers go for Guinness record
Are you a novice swimmer, do you want to be a world record holder?
As a windup to Water Safety Week, City of Surrey pools are offering free swimming lessons on June 20 as part of a Guinness World Record attempt at hosting the World's Largest Swim Lesson (multiple venues).
The current record from 2011 is 19,322 participants in a lesson that simultaneously involved 225 locations in Florida.
Surrey is making available three locations on Friday from 8-10 a.m.: The Newton Recreation Centre (13730 72 Ave.), South Surrey Indoor Pool (14655 17 Ave.) and Surrey Sport & Leisure Centre (16555 Fraser Hwy.)
Each two-hour "lesson" is split into 30-minutes slots into which participants can register.
There are three ways to register as part of our world record attempt: Register in person at your local pool, call 604-501-5100 or visit http://bit.ly/1kYzAub
