It’s never too late to learn how to swim

Many adults would like to learn to swim given the right opportunity. Swimming is an excellent form of low impact exercise with many health benefits including weight loss, muscle toning and cardiorespiratory improvement. It’s also good fun.

We understand that you may feel embarrassed or nervous about taking swimming lessons as an adult but please don’t feel like you’re the only one.

At Teddington Pools & Fitness Centre we have a range of adult lessons designed for varying abilities. It’s never too late to learn to swim. From lessons for the complete beginner who lacks water confidence to lessons for competent swimmers who want to improve their technique. Feel Good Swim School has it all!

We offer 6 week courses for beginners, intermediate or advanced swimmers. Our next term will start in September and booking is now available.

Please click here for more information or call the centre reception on 020 3772 2999.

Swimming is a total body workout that leaves you feeling energised and revitalised. So come and try one of our lessons today and get swimming.

Do you have time to volunteer?

The Sports Development Team have an inclusive Sports initiative called RISE (Richmond upon Thames Inclusive Sport and Exercise). RISE started in 2008 and promotes inclusive and disability specific sport and exercise activities in the borough for children, young people and adults.

We are looking for people who are interested in becoming a RISE buddy or volunteer at some of our sessions to support children, young people or adults with disabilities to access sports and exercise opportunities within the local area.

Buddies and volunteers will be matched with an individual or small group and support them in the activity that they would like to do. This may be an organised session such as RISE football or RISE tennis, an exercise class at a sports centre, athletics club or casual use of the gym.

The hours are flexible and we will match the buddy or volunteer according to their experience, availability and interests. If you have any questions or would like any further information then please call 020 8831 6134 or email
