Lebara, one of Britain’s most successful telecommunications companies, has just announced a new partnership with British Swimming.

They will be supporting all events run by this organization, including their prestigious Championships and games for both Paralympic athletes and those with lower disabilities.

British Swimming first partnered with Lebara in 2020, making them their official telecommunications partner.  The two brands find synergy in their focus on developing a spirit of community, high performance and flexibility – values that were particularly relevant in the lead-up to the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, which saw some historic results in the pool.
