SwimWay Swimming School Pool Focus: Balham / Tooting Bec

Our pool focus blog has taken us to three of our longest-running locations: East SheenPutney and Wimbledon.  This week we bring you a venue that we have worked extremely hard to provide exclusive service at over the past few years.  We are delighted to offer our swimming lessons in Balham / Tooting Bec!


Since opening in 2016, the Balham / Tooting Bec pool swiftly became one of our most popular venues. We offered a wide range of lessons for all ages 3 months to 9 years.  Within a year we were fully booked with a long list of local residents eager to book with us.

Following some conversations with the council, the venue underwent some necessary restructuring to the operation.  We started limiting the lessons to Mondays – Fridays, afternoons offering 1:1 lessons only.  Nevertheless, our unique methodology was as popular as ever, and we are happy to still be providing our lessons at this venue to this day.


Lessons run Mondays to Fridays from 3pm-6.30pm. We run 1:1 lessons only at this venue for children aged 2 – 9 years old.  We advise only booking children who are swimming up to SwimWay Stage 6. However, higher stages and older children can book dependent on various factors – please contact us to inquire.

You can join us for term time and holiday lessons at this beautiful venue – an excellent location with warm, hospitable environments, perfect for the children to learn and thrive in!


Pay and display parking available on Elmbourne Road and surrounding roads between 9:30am and 4:30pm.  The pool is a 15 minute walk from both the Balham and Tooting Bec Stations.  For more information on parking in the Borough, click here.


The Balham / Tooting Bec location is fitted with the necessary facilities including a waiting area, toilet, 2 private changing areas, 2 showers, and a poolside viewing area for parents to watch the lessons.
