Fun Swim


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. There’s something to make swimming fun for kids of all ages – and mum and dad too.

With lots of holiday activities too there’s never been a better time to head to our pool and take a dip.

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, Better offers swimming lessons for all ages and abilities, at affordable prices.

Our Swim School is the largest provider or swimming lessons across the UK, helping over 100,000 people across the UK learn to love the water. 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 ASA's National Learn to Swim Teaching Plan, so you’ll be in safe hands in the water.


Swim for Fitness


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 level of ability, you’re sure to find a session for you in our pool.

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 and extra motivation, our qualified coaches are on hand to discuss your training and technique.



 Pre Cleanse
Please help us to keep your pool clean by following our
Swim Hygiene guidelines by showering and using the toilet
facilities before you swim.
• Respect
People of different standards and abilities will use the pool. Please
respect their right to enjoy their swim.
Choose your lane using the fast, medium and slow signs and by
watching those already swimming. Before pushing off at each
turn, check to see if anyone faster is approaching.
• Direction
Please follow the directional signs and move across to the
appropriate side of the lane for each length.
Try and leave at least 5 metres between yourself and another
swimmer and if it’s possible to see a pace clock, then a 5 second
gap is just as good.
Wide stokes such as butterfly and breaststroke should be avoided
when the lanes become busy. If you change to a slower stroke as
part of your session, think about moving lanes.
• Equipment
Fitness swimming training equipment, such as fins and hand
paddles, is permitted at the discretion of the lifeguard and based
on capacity. Snorkels can be used in conjunction with conventional
swimming goggles.
• Resting
Whether stopping for a rest or catching your breath after
completing your swim, please be mindful that others using the
lane will want to keep on swimming without stopping
• Share
Celebrate your achievements and share your swimming stories
with us on social media using #betterswimming, we’d love to hear them!
