SWIMMING WITH BETTER

Swimming’s a great way to have fun and get healthy, whatever your age or level of ability.

At Kensington Leisure Centre we have three Swimming Pools. A 25m competition pool, 20m teaching pool and leisure pool.

If you’re honing your swimming technique, or introducing your little one to the pool, you’re in great hands. Kensington Leisure Centre hosts a range of swimming lessons and courses, with expert guidance from qualified swimming instructors. We also work closely with Swim England to provide lessons for both adults and children, from three months and upwards. What’s more, our comprehensive timetable for public swim and targeted sessions will keep you informed of all that's available at Kensington Leisure Centre.
