I am male 47 i don't have any medical complaints except little knee pain when climbing on the steps. But now i like to learn swimming shall i join ?

Checkup : You should be able to join swimming, but given your age and without knowing your past medical history, might be a good idea to get that annual checkup first to make sure your health is ok.
