    Adult Swimming Lessons

    Age does not have to be a barrier if you want to learn how to swim!

    If you have a fear of the water, can't get your face wet or panic just thinking about the deep end then it's easy to think swimming is not for you. However, if you learn to swim you can have fun in the water with your friends and family. You can also make a splash in the water while on holiday.

    It's never too late to learn and here is your chance to have tuition with a qualified teacher specially trained in teaching adult non swimmers.

    We also cater for 'intermediate' level swimmers who are looking to improve their technique, skills and stamina. All lessons are offered for small groups (maximum number per group 8) of swimmers, but our instructors will adapt the lessons to suit the individual needs within the groups.



    Try Swimming: Swimming Lessons for Adults

    Are you an adult who would like to try swimming; maybe you were not given the opportunity to learn at school or maybe you did but haven’t swam since leaving?

    We have teamed up with Sport England to provide #tryswimming sessions. These sessions have been designed specifically with you in mind to enable you to enjoy swimming with your family as they grow and #tryswimming for themselves.

    We want you to enjoy each session over the next 10 weeks and grow in confidence to swim with your family. You will be given a family swim pass every two weeks so you can enjoy the great benefits that comes for being able to swim and play in the water with your children. 

    So no matter your age, we want to hear from you. We can offer you two 10 week courses of #tryswimming sessions so you can discover swimming at your own pace.
