January Lockdown

January 4th, 2021|BLOG IT|

Due to the latest UK Government announcement of a National lockdown, we are pausing our swimming & tennis lessons. Hopefully, we are in the final stretch of this pandemic now, with the vaccine being deployed and we hope to see restrictions permanently eased to allow us to resume.  We would once again like to express our gratitude of the entire Typhoon Team. We get so much enjoyment from teaching your children, and we are already counting down the days until we can reopen.  Keep an eye out on our website and our social media pages, and check your emails for any updates if you're an active customer with us 💌 Stay safe everyone 💙 #TeamTyphoon

End of Year Recess

December 16th, 2020|BLOG IT|

This is a little reminder about our 2-week festive break will be from Monday 21st December to Sunday 3rd January inclusive This means there will be NO swimming or tennis on or between these dates. Our other online services will continue as normal. Our last session of 2020 will be on Sunday 20th December and our first one back will be on Monday 4th January 2021. We have considered returning for a few dates during this period to continue to provide you with lessons, however, given the increased social mixing we feel it's safest to wait until Monday the 4th to resume lessons. Thank you for swimming and playing tennis with us, our customers always humble us, and we truly appreciate the opportunity to teach your children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters! We look forward to teaching them again in 2021! Remember to keep up to date by following us on Instagram and Facebook and if you have any enquiries you can drop us an email at Hello@TyphoonLeisure.com  We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year! #TeamTyphoon

The WHO confirms swimming is Covid-safe

November 22nd, 2020|BLOG IT|

The WHO confirms swimming is Covid-safe The World Health Organisation (WHO) have released a statement via social media confirming that swimming pools are safe environments when combined with the social distancing measures such as the ones Typhoon has in place. Typhoon feels its time to #OpenOurPools, especially as being fit and healthy is a major factor in reducing the risk of covid-19. Sport is essential to many children and adults, both for physical and mental well-being. Learning to swim specifically, also helps to prevent drowning: which is the 3rd largest cause of accidental death. There are numerous other benefits unique to swimming: it's non-impact, used extensively in rehabilitation, studies have shown asthma can improve due to the air moisture and the increased lung capacity that swimmers build, it teaches self-discipline, improves coordination and proprioception, builds muscle, provides cardiovascular endurance...and so much more! It's no wonder swimming is regarded as the #1 sport and a "perfect workout" by Harvard Health! (Click here for the WHO post on Facebook)

Typhoon Tech Tips #1

July 21st, 2020|Typhoon Tech Tips|

Keep Up with Catch Up How it’s performed Video What it helps with How it’s performed: Leave the wall in perfect streamlined, followed by the swimmers usual number of underwater dolphin kicks. During the breakout phase the swimmer will transition into a flutter kick and slide the hands outwards until they are in line with their shoulders - this ‘number 11’ arm position will be the base from which the drill begins. A Continuous flutter kick supports this drill which involves taking single, alternating, arm strokes. Any breathing pattern can be added to this, and even become the focus of the Catch Up drill by breathing every stroke/each alternating side. What does it help with? By performing the Catch Up drill a coach and swimmer can focus on body rotation, the pull & recovery phase of the arm stroke, the breathing and overall coordination of a freestyle stroke by breaking it down into half cycles. As all stokes start by building from the body position, it makes sense for us to start there. This drill can [...]
