Building Happy and Confident Swimmers, One Stroke at a Time

Swimming is not just a sport; it’s a life skill. Blue Wave is a swim school based in South West London and we have designed our progressive swimming lessons after many years of research and experience in the field of teaching and coaching swimming.

Our aim is to help everyone to feel confident in and around the water and to become a competent swimmer, regardless of their age. We have a 360º approach towards teaching swimming so we offer swimming lessons for all ages, from babies (after 4 months) and upwards. We teach water confidence as well as swimming skills and swimming lessons are delivered for building the self-assurance and ability that everybody needs to fully enjoy being in water and swimming. While we cater for all age groups, there is a link and continuity in how we teach across the different levels and lessons.

We offer both private and group lessons to all swimming abilities. Our aim is to teach the four competitive strokes as well as other aquatic skills like sculling, diving and treading water and produce happy, confident and well-rounded swimmers.

We have classes for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, school-age children and even adults – yes, we cater for everyone. Whether you are looking for group or private swimming lessons, if your goal is to join a well-rounded professionally run swim school which cares about the quality of the lessons and clients’ experience, don’t look any further. There’s a reason Blue Wave Swim School was a finalist for the ‘Best Business in SW19’ and the runner up for ‘Best Business in Sport & Leisure’ in Wandsworth in 2015.

There is no age limit at which to join us. Whether your child is a complete beginner or you are an advanced swimmer looking for a place to polish your stroke techniques – we have a team of excellent swimming teachers and coaches who can help. All of our teachers have recognised swimming teaching/coaching qualifications, many have been competitive swimmers themselves, and they are experienced in teaching swimming across different ages and swimming abilities.

Our termly swimming lessons are delivered at two different venues in SW15 and SW19 in London. Our classes held in Putney (at Putney Leisure Centre) in Wandsworth on Thursday mornings and in Wimbledon on Saturday afternoons.
