BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, 6 SEPTEMBER: IMPROVE YOUR SWIMMING
Classes are open to all and our friendly professional coach will provide help and support to encourage you to develop your strokes. The classes are particularly suited to those who have learnt to swim, but lack confidence in the pool.
Our normal session fees apply. If you're a newcomer to the club then your first session is free!
OUR SESSIONS & FEES
Your first session with Northern Wave is free and thereafter either £4.50 or for those earning less than the living wage, which is currently £8.45 per hour, £2.50.
As a club run for its members by its members we trust that everyone pays what is appropriate to their circumstances.
