Swimming Lessons

At Sport & Fitness, we believe swimming isn’t just a sport, it is also a vital life skill. Learning to swim as a child means that not only do you learn this skill early, you then have a lifetime to enjoy the health and fitness benefits of swimming.

Intensive Swimming Lessons

Available to junior members and non-members

Intensive swimming lessons run during school holidays and offer one swimming lesson per day for a week to improve juniors’ swimming skills in a short space of time.


Dates for the next intensive swimming lessons will be available soon.
