Adult swimming lessons

Banner notices

Swimming is not only a fantastic way to keep fit, it’s a life skill. Whatever your age and whatever your ability, we have a range of swimming options to help you take the plunge.

If you haven't swum before, lack confidence or simply want to improve your strokes, our adult swimming lessons have got you covered.

All our leisure centres offer instruction for adults with professional teachers who understand and appreciate your needs.

Every half hour lesson is suitable for every level of ability.

Please contact Reception or use the Be Well Wigan app to book onto any of the following sessions. Please note these only run during School Terms times and will have a different timetable during School Holidays. Contact your chosen Leisure Centre for further information as booking in advance is recommended.
