Adult Swimming Lessons

Swim Doctor is Better’s adult swimming programme designed for all your swimming needs. Whether you want to learn to swim, improve your technique, fitness or train for an event, our Swim Doctors will help you make the most of your time in the pool in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. 

Here at the London Aquatics Centre, we know how easy and fun it can be once you get started - swimming is right up there as being one of the most enjoyable life skills worth learning and you've come to the right place. It’s a great form of exercise for your physical and mental wellbeing and think of all the new water sports you could take part in also. With this new skill, it could save your life, it could also unlock new career opportunities from swimming teacher to flight attendant - or it could simply mean some more quality time with your family in the pool!

So, whether you want to keep yourself and your family safe, switch careers, raise your heart rate, or just reward yourself with some ‘me time’, our Swim Doctor sessions could be just the thing for you.
