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

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 our next intensive swimming lessons will be released in due course.
