At Westwoods Health Club we recognise the importance of teaching children to swim at an early age and therefore offer our members a choice of either attending within a group (up to 8:1) or private lessons (1:1, 2:1 or 3:1). Many adults also take advantage of the private lessons for stroke development or to build confidence for the weak or non-swimmer.

SWIM STARS

SWIM STARS group lessons are run by the club for 3.5 years old and beyond and last for 30 minutes on a Monday afternoon and Saturday morning. Members can book directly at reception once their child has been trialled by one of our swimming teachers to assess their ability.  Please see below for the current block dates.

For more information on prices or to book a trial please contact our swimming co-ordinator, Jenni Clark, on 0131 332 5777 or by email on j.clark@fettes.com.

Private swimming lessons

Private swimming lessons are run by Anne, Karina and Marta on a self-employed basis and they are able to provide 1:1, 2:1 and 3:1 x 30 minute lessons. Unlike the group lessons organised by the club, the teachers organise their own schedules during time slots made available to them on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Please contact the teachers directly on the following emails for more information and availability:

  • Anne Dooner on 07984 281794 or email
  • Karina Comerford on 07975625208 or email
  • Marta Sanchez on 07596 444929 or email
