Learn to Swim


Swimming Lessons are a vital skill to learn in a country surrounded by miles of water and coastlines. Beaches, rivers and lakes are all just a short drive from Christchurch so the Wharenui Swimming Club plays an important role teaching people to learn to swim. Wharenui has 3 indoor heated swimming pools with a special under 5yrs pool for infant and baby swimming lessons. We also have swimming lessons for schools and adults. Friendly trained instructors have patience and skills to teach you to learn to swim.

It is our goal to teach everyone how to swim to the best of their ability in a positive and fun environment.

We have lessons all year round in our indoor heated pools and our friendly staff are all qualified through Swimming New Zealand.

We offer lessons seven days a week for your convenience. All our group lessons are 25 minutes duration.
