Aquazone is Parkwood Leisure’s swimming lesson programme, which operates in partnership with the Amateur Swimming Association’s National Plan for Teaching Swimming. The programme offers lessons for both children and adults on a group or one-to-one basis. Swimming is a life skill which everyone should have the opportunity to master in their lifetime - we are dedicated to ensuring that, whatever their age or ability, everyone can have fun whilst learning to swim!

We are dedicated to ensuring our swimming lessons are fun. We believe no one is too old or young to start learning. With that in mind our swimming lesson programme is designed to suit all ages and abilities. We provide lessons for children, adults and private one to one’s. Our swimming lesson programmes are endorsed by the ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) which ensures our teachers are fully qualified and inspiring. Our lesson programme follows the ASA National Plan, which simply gives everyone a badge and a certificate as they progress. Swimming is an important life skill; contact us today to learn how we can help you and your family swim well.
