We are delighted to announce that our newest pool located in Great Paxton is now open for bookings! This warm, clean private swimming pool will be used exclusively to provide private swimming lessons for children and adults in a luxury environment with no distractions, and guaranteed results.

Elite Swimming Academy Founder Ed Williams said: “We are so excited to be opening in Great Paxton. The new swimming pool is stunning and we can’t wait to meet all of our new customers over the next few weeks.”

The big thing that makes Elite truly special is that they only ever have one class of three children in the pool at any one time. This means there is plenty of space for children to develop and there are no distractions caused by multiple classes. Having such small classes taught by world class swimming coaches in a private environment means that children progress incredibly fast.

Elite’s founder Ed was once the Captain of St Neots Swans Swimming Club having swam for them competitively for many years. He then went on to become one of the youngest people in history to swim solo across the English Channel aged 19. In recent years Ed has also swam across the Gibraltar Strait between Europe and Africa and the Irish Channel between Ireland and Scotland. It is this passion for swimming that really sets Elite apart with their lessons as they aim to inspire the children to be the best they can be.

“Most of our three year olds can swim front crawl, back stroke and breast stroke by their fourth birthdays. It is a joy to watch this fast track progression and seeing the children having so much fun along the way,” said Ed

Elite Swimming Academy opened in Cambridge ten years ago with one swimming pool, one teacher and one client. Now they are based from 15 private pools over three counties employing 30 of the highest quality coaches and working with in excess of 1000 students every week from complete beginners right through to international medallists and British Team members.

Elite Swimming Academy are very much looking forward to coming to Great Paxton where they already have a large client base who travel for miles to be taught by them. They recently won Community Business of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year in the Cambridgeshire SME Business Awards thanks to their winning formula.

“Although our services are very high end we are actually very affordable too. The fact that we get our students progressing years in advance means that parents can stop swimming lessons years earlier which saves a fortune in the long run!” said Ed
