Swimming’s a great way to have fun and get healthy, whatever your age or level of ability. If you’re honing your swimming technique, or introducing your little one to the pool or participating in one of our swimming lessons and courses you’re in great hands.We also work closely with the Amateur Swimming Association 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 Wimbledon Leisure Centre and Spa.  



Swimming is a vital life skill that everyone should have, whatever their age. Whether you’ve never been swimming before, or you’d just like to improve your technique, we offer swimming lessons for all ages and abilities, at affordable prices.







At Better, we believe that swimming should be fun and exciting for all the family. That’s why you’ll find a wide range of fun swim sessions at Wimbledon Leisure Centre and Spa.

From Under-5s and family sessions to swimming lessons for adult & toddlers and children, there’s something to make swimming fun for kids of all ages – and mum and dad too.

With lots of holiday activities, a pool inflatable, special offers, off-peak and concessionary prices, there’s never been a better time to head to Wimbledon Leisure Centre and Spa to take a dip. 




If you’re looking for a low-impact way to get fit and healthy, swimming could be the perfect choice. Whatever your fitness levels, age or ability, you’re sure to find a session for you at Wimbledon Leisure Centre and Spa.

Our Swim for Fitness sessions take place in slow, medium and fast lanes, so you can take things at your own pace. If you’re looking for tips or extra motivation, our qualified instructors are on hand to discuss your training and technique.



In addition to group lessons, our ASA qualified Swimming Teachers also offer private lessons for all customers.  You don't have to be a member, our friendly staff at reception can arrange everything with the teachers directly. If you want to know more about prices, availability of teachers and available times, please visit the centre or call us 020 8542 1330.


This Girl Can Swim


We run a female adult-only swim session between 8pm-9pm every Thursday. Come and have a relaxing swim on a quiet Thursday evening, where our Pool Activator, Heather, who is also a qualified swimming instructor, will be there to offer advice and support if you have any questions.  


** We will always try to have female lifeguards on shift during this session, however due to staff scheduling, unfortunately this may not always be possible.

Extra Information

We work with National Governing Bodies to deliver our lessons and courses, which means all our teachers are professional, passionate and pupil-focused. Our experienced, qualified teachers follow the Amateur Swimming Association's National Learn to Swim Teaching Framework, so you’ll be in safe hands in the water. 


*All customers must adhere to our swim safety rules, which can be found here
