Three swimming pools of Ahmedabad will have separate one hour slot for women. This will become effective from August 1, according to a release issued by the Ahemdabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).
The release says that the AMC had responded to long pending demand of working women for morning slot in view of the fact that Gujarat has woman Chief Minister and Ahmedabad mayor was a woman.
Presently the swimming pools which have provision for women have afternoon time only for women. This made it difficult for working women to enjoy swimming in civic pools which have very low fee for all categories.
Now women will be able to swim in morning in Sardar Patel stadium, Vasna swimming pool and Ranip swimming pool. The AMC further stated that if this experience proves successful, it will be replicated at other AMC run swimming pools too.
