• Short Summary

    Members of the Married Ladies' Swimming Club have fun in an outdoor pool.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "For Married Ladies Only! To Coventry belongs the distinction of having the largest Married Ladies' Swimming Club."

    Coventry, West Midlands.

    M/S of a group of women in swimsuits and swimming hats jumping into an outdoor swimming pool. Various shots of them doing different swimming strokes and movements - most look like synchro-swimming moves. A woman off-camera calls instructions to them and says "You wouldn't think some of these ladies have got sons over twenty-one, would you?". We see the seven "heavy weights of the club" - seven rather large ladies - diving off the board and into the water; they look quite funny as they take up odd postures for jumping in. The watching women cackle. M/S of a group of women trying to pull one of the large ladies out of the water; they all topple in after her.
