Putney Leisure Centre's Pool: Size & Depth
The swimming pool is a 12-metre indoor heated swimming pool
Water temperature is set at 31.5°C throughout the year, perfectly nice and warm for little ones.
The pool is regularly tested to make sure the appropriate standards of hygiene are being maintained.
The shallow end is 0.8 metres deep and the max depth is 0.9 meters. At this depth, most three-year-olds are able to touch the bottom of the pool making it an ideal place for pre-schoolers to begin their learn-to-swim journey.
Being able to reach the bottom enables them to confidently enjoy the water. Putney leisure centre's teaching swimming pool has two fun slides too (slides are shut post COVID-19). Many London pools do not have this facility. The venue is well supplied with all the teaching aids - such as mats, floats and noodles, required for teaching swimming so there is no requirement to bring along additional swimming equipment to lessons.
There are spacious changing rooms for boys/men and girls/ladies and family changing rooms with baby changing boards and nappy bins. Clients have an access to plenty of warm showers and toilets. Changing area also has lockers (you need to lock them with padlocks) but, post-coronavirus pandemic, we discourage people to use the lockers to reduce the touch points. If you must use a locker, please bring your own antiseptic wipes and clean the lockers before and after and use. Padlocks for lockers can be purchased from the reception but, to be on safe-side bring your own. Parents and carers must leave the changing facilities in a clean condition and put any used nappies (normal nappies or water nappies) in nappy-bins in the baby changing cubicles, Clients are responsible to take all of their belongings with them home.
Observatory & Waiting Area:
Post Corona, unfortunately, we are asking only one adult per child to come to our lessons. We cannot have any extra adult to come to our baby and toddler lessons as spectators.
Eating & Drinking in this Venue
There are vending machines for snacks and cold drinks however, no tables or chairs available to seat after lessons. Post COVID-19, the cafe at Putney Leisure Centre remains shut till further notice.
Award and Achievement
Hear it From Our Clients
A good swim school with professional staff
Although I have only attended two lessons, Marjan’s bubbly personality makes you feel instantly at ease. During the lessons, the pool was not very busy which is a good thing (as opposed to public pools) for those who are anxious. I would strongly recommend to adults who have experienced trauma with water at a certain time in their lives.
My son has been going to swimming lessons at Blue Wave in Wimbledon for a few years now and thoroughly enjoys it. The teaching is great and the lessons well run. Helps to prepare him for when we finally get to go on holiday again!
My son went to improve his swimming technique and found his instructor very helpful, very kind and patient. The school itself is very welcoming and feels safe for all the children who go there. I would highly recommend it.
My son is 4 years-old and we were looking for weekend swimming classes in a nice environment that could bring good results. After some research we chose Blue Wave Swim. Our son has been having private lessons since the end of 2018 and he is progressing very well. We believe the professionalism of the team, the clean and tidy infrastructure, and the good care of the management are contributing for his development and confidence in the water. Thank you very much Blue Wave Swim!
I am grateful to Marjan and her team at Blue Wave Swim for their hard work and for promoting happiness and enjoyment in swimming. It is amazing to watch the lessons, see the attention, the encouragement and the support the children receive. I have been impressed with my daughters’ progress and the fact that they love attending their classes and learning a vital life skill. Thank you very much. Great job!
My daughter, who is now 7 years old, started with blue wave two years back and we have been very happy with her progress at the school. Initially we started with group lessons but once she got comfortable in water we moved her to semi private lessons, which made a lot of difference in her ability to learn swimming. As part of the smaller group she is better bonded with other children in the group and gets more attention from the swimming instructor, which is helping her advance her swimming skills. During her 2 years with blue wave, swimming instructors for my daughter have changed and while continuity in learning was maintained, I think this could have been managed better. Needless to say, she still goes and enjoys her time here and looks forward to her class every week. Overall we are very pleased with Blue Wave and would recommend them without any hesitation.
Highly recommend this swimming school. My daughter has been attending since she was 1 years old and she loves it. The teachers are very good with children and my daughter, who is now 4 years old is very confident in the water.
I’d like to thank Marjan and her team in particular Darren who has developed my 5 year old daughter Millie over the last 2 years into a confident young swimmer. It takes time to develop this confidence and having two older children who also went to Blue wave I know how important it is not to rush the childs development of confidence in the water.
My daughter loves swimming! Since attending Blue Wave Swim School lessons her water confidence is high and that gives us peace of mind when she is playing near water. The staff are fantastic and the lessons are fun!
