It is still just as hot, and the people of Marseille will be able to continue to cool off for free in the city's swimming pools.

The municipality has decided to extend "on the back of its success" the free entry introduced on July 21 for all in the city's swimming pools.

Already more than 50,000 people have benefited from this system, notes the town hall in a press release.

On July 1, the city had already decreed free admission for children under twelve, before extending it to all.

In addition, 5,000 young people were able to learn to swim this summer as part of learning sessions.

In a 2018 study, Marseille had established that nearly 40% of its young people did not know how to swim or badly when they entered college, due to an infrastructure deficit, which remains to be filled.
