Perfect for those who can swim 10-20 metres without stopping but may only be able to perform one stroke.

  • Swim for fitness

Sessions will include stroke technique and development, drills for all strokes, dives, turns and distance swims.

Unfortunately, the changes in the return to lessons after Covid-19 mean that the teacher is unable to get in the water.  For this reason, we are not yet able to restart Beginners 1 lesson.  This includes beginners who have never been to a swimming pool or may have lost all confidence. We are hoping to run these sessions again the in the future so keep an eye out on the website! 

Covid-19 - Please help us keep everyone safe by following the guidelines below:

Please download the Track and Trace app and scan the app upon arrival to the building. 

  1. Please arrive beach-ready under your clothes, you will be allowed in the changing rooms to change and shower before entering the pool hall. 

  2. Lockers will be available to secure clothes, valuables and belongings- we have made these cashless so you no longer need 20p.

  3. Please ensure that you have a pre-swim shower at home as this aids the effectiveness of chlorine in the swimming pool.

  4. At the end of your session, please return to the changing rooms and get changed quickly- there will be a 10-minute slot for you to get ready and we would encourage you to shower at home to minimise time spent in the changing rooms.

  5. Toilets and washbasins will be available in the pool changing rooms and cleaned regularly

  6. Disabled and baby change facilities will be available.

  7. Please note that at all sites, hand dryers will be available to use but hairdryers will not be available.  Water fountains will be available to fill bottles.

  8. There is a one-way system in place, please ensure you stick to it and do NOT overtake other members in the pool.
