Water Nippers Swimming Success Story


At Water Nippers Swimming, we hope to give children the experience and skills they need to be able to enjoy being in the water, whilst always staying safe. We have taught many hundreds of children to swim over the years, and we often wonder what our budding swimmers get up to once they outgrow our pools.

Recently we were lucky enough to hear from one such ex water nipper. Arabella attended swimming lessons at the Trinity Hydro Pool in Wandsworth, with Adrian, one of our highly experienced teachers. Her parents have written to us to let us know how much they appreciated ‘Adrian’s skills and efforts in making the courses such an enjoyable and rewarding experience’.

To top it all off, Arabella’s time at Water Nippers has enabled her to join one of the junior competitive swimming squads at the Chelsea & Westminster Swimming Club. Not only was she selected, but she has gone on to win a bronze medal for crawl and silver medal for backstroke in her first competitive gala for the club. This is an absolutely amazing achievement for a 5-year-old, competing for the first time against club members from across London. As you can see from the picture, she is a very pleased little girl and we couldn’t be prouder of her. We all wish her the best in her future swimming career, watch this space, she could be winning medals for Great Britain at the Olympic games one day.

We cannot promise that your little one will win medals but we will do our best to ensure they enjoy their lessons with Water Nippers and take away with them an essential life skill. Being able to swim will keep them safe in the water and give them the tools to keep themselves fit throughout their life.

The Gift of Swimming

We are nearing the end of November so I feel it is time to mention the C word. Yes Christmas is on its way and with that comes those questions from family members of what to buy the children for Christmas. For most of us, our minds go blank or images pop into our head of our home getting increasingly cluttered with toys.

Water Nippers Swimming have the perfect solution.  A gift that won’t take up any space and is not made of plastic! Think about buying a course of children’s swimming lessons for one of our pools. We have lessons at The Wimbledon Hydro Pool in Morden, The Trinity Hydro Centre in Wandsworth, The Holiday Inn in Sutton as well as pools in Loxwood, Isfield and Seaford.

Giving a child the gift of swimming lessons will help them gain vital life skills.  Learning to swim is so important for the safety of your child, but it also means that the family as a whole get so much more enjoyment out of those summer holidays abroad. A confident swimmer is a confident child and our children’s swimming lessons will help your little ones grow in confidence both in and out of the pool. Our classes are small and take place in warm private pools in and around London, with qualified and experienced swim teachers that will take the time to get to know your child, in order to get the very best out of them in the water.  Contact the office today to book a course of lessons and give the Christmas gift that keeps on giving.
