    Default swimming classes Chennai

    Hi ILites

    I live on Palavakkam , ECR and I am desperately scouting for a good , decent and prefessional awimming center where the coach knows how to teach kids without scaring them or screaming but just encouraging them. I also want to get into swimming classes but I really cant find a good pool. Anybody has any experience with swimming centers in Chennai specifically south chennai.

    Cheers
    Deepa

    Deepa, have you tried Vishwa's at Thiruvanmiyur. There was also Sindhur near 4th Seaward Road in Thiruvanmiyur - friends of ours used to take their child (7 year old) there. How are those two? How about the Velachery indoor swimming pool?
    I dont know how to swim and I have been meaning to learn with DS. Would appreciate your review of places you've been to. I live in Kottivakkam on ECR.

    Krithika,

    I will second latha on the courses in aquatic complex coaches are good and also you have good water.

    If you do not mind travelling mv swimming/tennis on velachery -tambaram road have good classes.

    Another, is the one on medavakkam high road at puzhudhivakkam, personally know that the water is clean and you have good coaches. my kids have attended classes before and do not go now as they have classes at school.

    I heard some bad reviews on vishwa..in general...

    tks both of you. Travelling may not be an option right now... was thinking of starting as soon as this fella is potty trained.. but maybe when he is older.

    Just in case anyone from North Chennai is checking in,

    Although there are two pools close to the Marina,

    1.Anna Swimming Pool-open only to men

    2.Marina Swimming Pool-offers swimming classes during summers which are only for boys and men.

    Marina has an hour allotted exclusively for women. Time:9AM -10AM

    Hope this tidbit helps.
