We run Adult Drop-in Freestyle Coaching sessions here on every Monday evening (except Bank Holidays) from 7pm – 8pm.

Lessons are priced at £8 per session (or £75 for 10 if you purchase an ESA 10-Swim Card) and are the perfect way to boost your technique, stamina, confidence and endurance in a very short space of time.
