Swimming lessons for babies, children and adults in the Colchester, Tendring/Harwich and Tiptree/Maldon areas

At swim2swim we provide swimming lessons for babies, children and adults. Our water based swimming instructors can teach beginners, improvers and advanced swimmers, either in a small group or private lessons. We also only have one lesson in the pool at any one time.

All our awards are certified – meaning you can take them into adulthood

Our Adult and Child / Parent and Child swimming lessons have one water based swimming teacher. The main focus at this stage is building water confidence, developing safety skills and enjoyment for the adult and child. We pass on swimming teaching skills to the adult / parent to practice with baby / infant swimmer.

We can also provide private tuition on a 1 to 1, 2 to 1, or 3 to 1 basis depending on your requirements. These swimming lessons can be very useful for the nervous / weak swimmer and equally beneficial to the advanced / club swimmer or tri-athelete who may need to work on a specific technique or skill. Our instructors can also work on general fitness or rehabilitation.

I will definitely recommend Swim2swim to anyone who may be considering swimming lessons. Also, a huge thank you to you & Matthew for the new Friday lesson (3.45).  All the children are absolutely loving it & Lucy is constantly asking how many days there are until her next lesson. I daren’t tell her she’s missing one tomorrow!

Gracie is doing very well in this class and we would like to stay where we are please. I would also like to take this opportunity to tell you Kelly and Val appear to have brought Gracie up to speed at the level of this class. I have never witnessed such professionalism and commitment in any of our previous Swim Teachers of which there have been several.

I would like to say thank you to them both for the immediate bond formed with Gracie and the results I witness each week. These ladies are brilliant!
