Olympic medallist Tom Daley has teamed up with leisure centre and pool

operator GLL as part of efforts to create a lasting diving legacy from the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Tom Daley Diving Academy will look to attract both adults and children to take up the sport.

The Academy will begin operation at the GLL-managed London Aquatics Centre – where Daley trains as part of his British Diving High Performance Programme – before being introduced at other GLL managed facilities across London and the UK.

The academy will be available in three types of facilities - fundamental centres; delivering beginner courses for children to learn the fundamentals of the sport; "Learn to Dive" development centres, to deliver beginner and improver classes for children and adults; and academy centres, delivering all levels of the programme up to competitive diving.

The grass roots venture is being endorsed and represented by Daley and supported by a series of world class coaches working across London to aide local progression of students.

Daley said: "The academy is all about giving everyone the opportunity to learn to dive. It's about getting people to try the sport, whether they want to dive for fun or competitively, whether they're three or 73.

"Diving's a great sport and together with GLL, I want to make sure it's an accessible sport. It's a really exciting time for diving in the UK."
