Live it Up this summer

Teddington Pools & Fitness Centre offers a wide range of swimming crash courses for children of all ages and abilities throughout the summer holidays.

Swimming crash courses are a great introduction to swimming for your child. The aim of our courses is to build and improve water confidence / swimming ability in all age groups, to improve weak swimmers and to give the younger ones an introduction to water safety and structured lessons.

Our holiday crash courses are designed both for participants already in our swim school and for those that have never used the centre before.

Diving and Rookie Lifeguard courses are also available.

Don’t forget you can come and have fun with the floats in our fun time float sessions. These run everyday during the school holidays, Monday to Friday 3.00 – 4.00pm and Saturday and Sunday 2.00 – 4.00pm.

The benefits of baby swimming

Front crawl, butterfly, and tumble turns. Whilst these are just vague possibilities on your newborn’s horizon, it’s still never too early to introduce them to the water. Weekly lessons provide you with something to really look forward to. A special time, where you can focus on the joy of being with your baby, learning and experiencing new things together, whist one of our qualified instructors gently guided you through.

Here at Teddington Pools & Fitness Centre we offer carer and baby/toddler courses. Lots of baby’s love the water and our Feel Good Swim School Infant learn to swim lessons are a fun way to bond and they can help your child feel more confident in the water as they grow.

These courses will help to build a carers confidence in handling their baby and familiarise them with the pool environment. Our carer and toddler courses are for water confident toddlers and will improve early water skills with carer support.

In at the deep end

If you’ve made it to adulthood without learning to swim, it may seem too late to start. But maybe it’s time to overcome your fear of water. Here at Teddington Pools & Fitness Centre we have experienced instructors who will help and support you.

But our adult swimming courses aren’t just for people who can’t swim at all. Many adults who know how to swim may not necessarily swim with an efficient swim stroke. We can help you to improve stroke development and fitness.

We offer 6 week courses for beginners, intermediate or advanced swimmers. Our summer term will start from 26 June so please book early to avoid disappointment.
