    I should like to learn if it is natural to say 'enjoy swimming' or 'enjoy your swimming' instead of 'enjoy your swim' to someone that is aboto have a swim.

    I gather that 'enjoy your swimming' sounds wrong because of 'your' but cannot make sure of the first one.

    'Enjoy your swim' is precisely how I'd say it.
