Always avoiding the pool because you never learnt the right strokes at the right time? Hey – we’re not here to judge; we’re here to help! Hence the round-up of classes that can take you from ‘hell, no!’ to pro!

YMCA

If you’re over 6 years old, then you’re most welcome to come and learn at the well-maintained YMCA pool between April to September. Located in Connaught Place, this pool is 25 X 15 mts with a maximum depth of six feet and the coaches will make sure that you learn well how to handle yourself in water. Their classes take place thrice a week for a reasonable charge.

Price: INR 2,800 per month {approx.}.

Gulmohar Park Club

Located near the Green Park metro station, the swimming pool at Gulmohar Park Club is very popular for training. They have spacious changing rooms and the space is open till September 30. The pool itself is not very big, but it has a shallow end and they make sure to keep the pool clean. If you’re a non-member, you can swim there for INR 300 per hour. To know about the coaching charges, you need to call them up.

Chilla Sports Complex

With an olympic size swimming pool as well as a toddler’s pool, you’ll be provided coaching by experienced trainers for INR 800, provided you become a member. Membership is open for all, so go and enroll yourself ASAP. Except Mondays, their pool is open on all summer days.

Price: INR 800 for coaching {approx.}.

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.

Pacific Sports Complex

Located in Andrew’s Ganj, this huge pool has eight lanes and and at max it is 6.5 feet deep. It is open till December on all days and anyone is allowed to use the pool at a charge of INR 600 per hour per person {this includes coaching}. We hear they have both male and female certified trainers, so feel free to ask them about that.

Price: INR 500 for a walk-in, per hour per person

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 2,600 for the first month and at INR 1,500 for every consequent month. However, we suggest you call them up and ask about the updated rates.

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. Also, we hear the entry ticket here is somewhere around INR 160 for non-members. So, it is not heavy on the wallet either.
