Adult Swimming with Hythe Aqua Swimming Club is for adults 17yrs+ who can swim lengths (25 metres). Hythe Aqua Adult Swimming covers a whole range of abilities from casual fitness training to high level competitive swimming. The training is also suitable for Triathletes and Open Water swimmers who wish to improve their skills and endurance.
Adult Swimming with Hythe Aqua is an ideal way to keep fit, socialise and improve your swimming skills under the direction of our experienced Coaches.
Our Adult Swimming sessions cater for a range of abilities from the causal length swimmer to the more competitive individual, across all age groups from 17yrs to 70+++++. If you are interested in improving your swimming or want to improve your fitness or perhaps compete then give us a try. We have two sessions each week Wednesday at 9.00pm and Fridays 8.00pm both at Hythe Pool. New starters are encouraged to come along to the Friday session to start.
Our Coaches provide structured training across the lanes which are generally organised on ability, so if you have not swum regularly and want to improve we can find a suitable lane to start.
If you are interested in competition a number of our adult members compete in Masters Competitions, Triathlons and Open Water events, where you race against people of similar ability. However, if competition is not for you there is no requirement to compete at all.
