Attitudes to Outdoor Swimming 2022

Your opinion matters. Complete our survey to help shape the future of outdoor swimming – and for a chance to win a prize

Each year we carry out a survey of outdoor swimmers tracking changes in swimming participation and behaviours. We ask what swimmers want and what stops them getting what they want. From the survey data, we create our annual Trends in Outdoor Swimming report (see below for link to last year’s report), which we share with government, sports governing bodies, coaches, venues, event operators and other swimming-related businesses to help drive the development and growth of outdoor swimming.

Your answers make a difference!
