Swimming Lessons

We would like to address several inaccuracies in a petition that is currently being circulated online.

  1. Swimming lessons are not being cut in Dundee.
  2. Lessons will still be available 7 days a week from the end of October 2019.
  3. Lessons are being increased at Grove and St Paul’s Swim & Sports Centres with 17 new classes.
  4. Leisure & Culture Dundee has never run classes at Braeview, Craigie and Menzieshill and subsequently has not cancelled classes at these venues.
  5. We have proposed to increase the amount of swim teaching hours and have a new lessons programme at Lochee Swimming & Leisure Centre and Harris Swim & Sports Centre in the near future.

Leisure & Culture Dundee continues to work closely Scottish Swimming to provide the best possible Learn to Swim programme for the City. We are absolutely committed to providing a programme that provides the skills for participants to become safe, competent and confident swimmers. For that reason, we are future proofing the service to cope with increased demand.
