Swimming’s a great way to have fun and get healthy, whatever your age or level of ability. At The Greenwich Centre we have two swimming pools including a learner pool for little ones and families. Swimming is great activity whatever your age. Whether you want to improve your technique, get fit, meet new friends, compete or have fun, you're sure to find a pool session that you'll love. All Swimming Classes can be seen on our weekly programme.
If you’re looking for a low-impact way to get fit and healthy, swimming could be the perfect choice. And whatever your fitness levels, age or level of ability, you’re sure to find a session for you at The Greenwich Centre. Our Swim for Fitness sessions take place in slow, medium and fast lanes, so you can take things at your own pace.

On your first visit you can collect your child's membership card from reception. You'll also get a free swimming hat from your swimming teacher, which should be worn for every lesson.
If it's just swimming that you're interested in, our single activity swimming membership means you'll get unlimited access to swimming.
If you're looking to use the gym and classes too, we offer a wide range of memberships with options to suit every budget. Everything from Pay and Play, to monthly or annual Prepaid memberships. What’s more, we won’t tie you in to a long term contract, giving you greater flexibility.
