Welcome to Swim2Swim. We are a family swimming business, which is run by Richard and Karen, along with a dedicated team of swimming instructors.

At Swim2Swim we provide swimming lessons for babies, toddlers, older children and adults. Our water-based swimming teachers and assistants teach beginners, improvers and advanced swimmers, either in a small group or private lessons.

We only have one lesson in the pool at any time, this creates a safe environment where the swimmers can focus on their own lesson in a calm surrounding.

All the pools have on-site parking, separate changing rooms, and viewing rooms so you can watch the lessons in comfort.

We run lessons in the Colchester area: Great Tey, near Marks Tey and Eight Ash Green, Primrose Pool in Ramsey, near Harwich, Manningtree, Lawford and Tendring. In addition to providing private swimming tuition we also teach at several infant and primary schools in North Essex.

In addition to group lessons we can provide private tuition on a 1to1, 2to1 or 3to1 basis depending on your requirements. These swimming lessons can be very useful for the nervous/ less confident swimmer and equally beneficial to the advanced/club standard swimmer or triathlete who may need to work on a specific technique or skill. Our swimming teachers can also work on general fitness or rehabilitation. Britannia pool is also available for private hire.

Our Adult/Parent and child classes have one water-based teacher, the focus at this stage is building water confidence in babies and toddlers plus developing water safety skills but most of all enjoyment for both the adult and child. We will pass on swimming teaching skills to the adult/parent to practice with your baby/infant/toddler swimmer. There are many benefits of learning to swim as a baby/young toddler and you can read about some of them here

We only have one class in the pool at anytime and have a ratio of one waterbased instructor to four swimmers

It has been a great day at Britannia Swimming Pool and Primrose Pool; welcoming the children and parents back to lessons has been an absolute pleasure.  

There were a few understandable nerves but we took our time and everyone left with lots of smiles - which is a joy to see :)

The children have been awesome and the teachers and team have been just as brilliant - well done Kellie, Nikki, Pauline, Sarah, Lara, Nigel and Wendy.

We are looking forward to welcoming more of you back tomorrow at You Fit Colchester 

Well done to everyone and thank you for your continued support, including the pool owners and their teams :)
