Olympians have been making a splash at Windsor Leisure Centre.
Sunday saw the swimming pool in Stovell Road offer its free Zoggs Oceans fun day for the first time.
Former British backstroke swimmer, James Goddard, and former GB synchronised swimming coach, Louise Woolley, were on hand to help children have a go at synchronised water polo and teach techniques in rookie lifeguarding.
It was also attended by the women's Olympic water polo team captain, Fran Leighton, who due to a broken wrist demonstrated techniques from the side of the pool.
A total of 120 children aged between seven and 14 took part across the day's two sessions.
At the end of the workshop children were given the chance to race against either James or Louise.
The centre's senior sports development officer, Jo Kilgallon, said: "The comments from parents is that it's really good for the children to be inspired, and to do something different to standard swimming lessons."
