Our award winning aquatics programme running at our two leisure centres in Barking and Dagenham has something for everyone:
- Group lessons for age 3+ following the ASA Learn to Swim programme from Ducklings to Stage 7
- Beginner and improver classes for adults, including women only classes
- Adult and child lessons for babies and toddlers
- Swimming squads for competition, fitness or fun with the Barking and Dagenham Aquatics Club
Joining our swimming lessons is easy and better still if you join on our Skills Guaranteed membership you get unlimited free swimming at our leisure centres for the swimmer plus an accompanying adult.
Our average pupil to teacher ratio is just 6:1 across all swimming lessons. Many of our groups have two teachers to provide additional support in the water.
Better still, our centres have the most extensive swimming lessons programme in the UK with over 7,000 spaces available at Abbey and Becontree Heath Leisure Centres, running seven days a week from early morning to late evening…so there should be a time to suit everyone!
