Never To Late or To Old

Not everyone had the opportunity to take lessons as a child. Our mission is to make sure that everyone knows how to swim as an adult.
Adult Classes
John Sugden Swim School has been teaching adults of all abilities for over 23 years. We have taught and coached over 400 adults during this time! Our Adult Lessons are for anyone over the age of 16 wanting to overcome the fear of water or simply wanting to learn or improve their swimming skills. This ranges from a nervous beginner or comfortable recreational swimmer upto a confident competitive swimmer, including triathletes.

Call today and we’ll book a FREE TRIAL LESSON (GROUP LESSON) to allow us to determine the right starting point for you, based on your swimming skill level and experience.
