We offer 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.

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 on Monday 5 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.



Time to celebrate that special day

Make your child’s birthday party one to remember!

We offer a great range of children’s parties available at Shene Sports & Fitness Centre, Whitton Sports & Fitness Centre, Hampton Sports & Fitness Centre and Teddington Sports Centre.

For something different why not try our dance party? We can co-ordinate the party to suit your individual needs, whether it’s choreographing a routine to High School Musical, West End shows and current pop tracks, or helping the party children create their own funny dance moves. Whatever you require, we’ll make sure we offer it!

Fun Gym and Jolly Tots parties are ideal for those little ones. You can be sure they’ll have a great time on both our superb bouncy castle and playing with our impressive collection of soft play equipment.
