Swiming in Marseille

“In Marseille, if you want to learn to swim , we can go in the sea”, this was the thought in 2018 of an elected majority of Jean Claude Gaudin (mayor from 1995 to 2020). In Marseille, only one for three children can swim in the most popular neighbourhoods. Swimming pools closed in the summer in the northern districts, the Luminy's one abandoned for 15 years, the finding was particularly alarming at the end of the years 2010. And yet the city is full of Olympic champions in the swimmer’s circle, a private swimming circle. To swim in Marseille citizen have no choice they must adapt.
