Diving Masterclasses With Peter Waterfie …

Peter Waterfield WEb

Olympic silver medallist, Peter Waterfield, is returning to Active Nation’s Quays Swimming And Diving Complex for a second time this month to share his knowledge and experience with anyone wanting to learn more about the sport of springboard/highboard diving.

Peter was at the Southampton venue all day on Monday 8th August and was truly inspirational. One parent said: “Thank you for this, my son thought it was great and loved hearing about Pete’s diving life and seeing his medals.”

Peter is coming back to the venue on Friday 19th August – offering another opportunity to hear about his career or to have a go at diving under his tuition.

Sessions include “An Audience with Pete”, giving a chance to meet the star and ask all those questions about what goes on behind the scenes.

For the more active there will be adult or family sessions in the pool with hints and tips about developing your diving skills.

Peter is looking forward to coming back and being able to pass his expertise on to the residents of Southampton.  “Diving has been the centre of my life for almost as long as I can remember,” he explained, “and continues to be my passion although I have now finished competing.  It is great to have the opportunity to develop that love of the sport with other people now by giving them a chance to hear about my experiences and get some advice on improving their technique.”

Anyone wanting to take part needs to ensure that they have booked into a slot at least 48 hours ahead.  Full details available by ringing the Dive Office on 023 8072 0922 or email
