Introducing Trinity Pool

Balham Swimming Pool at Trinity Crescent

We run lessons at pools in South West London. We are lucky enough to have been working with them for years now, so we are well acquainted with them.

Each has its own character. And these stretches of water have been the beginning of many swimming careers.

Trinity Pool is a privately-owned pool situated in the garden of a pretty townhouse situated between Balham and Tooting Bec. We are lucky to have access to it as it’s super convenient for the local nursery schools.

The pool is an intimate space, which, compared to busy public pools, really helps the pupil’s concentration and to build their confidence.

Some suggestions for after your lesson

We encourage our pupils and parents to spend time with each other outside of lessons. There are a number of cafes and parks in the vicinity of this swimming pool both in the direction of Tooting Bec or Balham. So why not suggest to anyone else at the lesson to grab a coffee or visit the local playground.

We are looking to build partnerships with local businesses to help benefit the school. Please do contact the office with any recommendations of places to go after class or services that might be useful to school members.
