Tuesdays at Bishop Gore for anyone over the age of 16.
The club has been holding sessions for juniors since the summer.
Coach Holly Curson said: “There are currently two sessions running and we hope to grow the club and attract complete beginners who want to get fit and enjoy a new activity. We have an exciting future ahead.

“It is all about teamwork and skill in the water. It is a great way to build new friendships and try something new and exciting. It’s also a great way of improving fitness and the club aims to cater for complete beginners and individuals coming back to the sport.”
