Swim group interested in NH aquatic center
DOVER, N.H. (AP) — A competitive swim team in New Hampshire is trying to drum up support for a 47,000 square-foot aquatic center in Dover.
Tim Paiva of the Seacoast Swimming Association says the group has gotten the go-ahead from the City Council to start a capital campaign to fund the $14 million venture.
He tells Foster’s Daily Democrat (http://bit.ly/XEaQuz) the hope is that the actual center would be run by a nonprofit group with a board and directors.
The Jenny Thompson Aquatic Center — named after the Olympic gold medalist swimmer from Dover — would hold a 50-meter, 8-lane pool and a smaller, teaching pool and would provide classes for diving, scuba, water polo, kayaking and synchronized swimming.
The center also would host competitive swimming meetings.
