Yamuna Sports Complex

Being one of the venues for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, the facilities here are outstanding. You need to be a member to gain access to their gigantic pool. Try for their temporary membership which is on first-cum-first serve basis, or the casual membership, which is valid for a single day. We’d recommend this one mostly for adults.

Rohini Sports Complex

North Delhi has its own eight-lane-and-enviable swimming pool at the Rohini Sports Complex. Their membership rules are a little tricky, so pay attention to them. If you’re under 21, you need to apply for a lifetime membership under your head-of-the-family’s name. If you’re older, apply for a membership under your own. Once you’re a member, feel free to dip into the pool anytime you want. Their pool will open on the first of May for a period of six months and they’ll charge you an extra INR 800 for coaching.

Price: INR 800

Khazan Singh Swimming Academy

Located near the old JNU campus, this academy pays homage to the sports hero Khazan Singh. Here, they assist all swimmers – no matter what level of competence. We hear, they also have good changing rooms and lockers. Last we checked, coaching came at INR 3,500 for the first month and at INR 2,000 for every consequent month. However, we suggest you call them up and ask about the updated rates. 

Price: Starting at INR 3500 for the first month (one hour each on all days except Tuesday).

Dwarka Sports Complex

With one of the best swimming pools in the vicinity, it is better to enlist for a temporary membership for which you need to call them up and inquire about the process. They are open from 6am to 9pm, with a pool cleaning break between 11am to 3pm.  The pool is closed every Monday.

Price: Starting at INR 500/month for six classes per week (for members). The swimming classes will resume again in the last week of April, so be sure to give them a call then for the finalised rates.
