A splash here ….a splash there! Who does not like having a dip in swimming pool during summers?
As Delhi’s summer is in full swing and summer vacations have already swung in, swimming classes seem like the right activity class to enroll for. Not only is swimming an important life skill, a good exercise, it’s one of the best coolants in this hot weather.
Before enrolling your kids, consider checking out the facility for the safety and hygiene standard and do meet the instructor to know about their teaching style. Try getting trial classes organized to make sure your kid really wants to go for it. Don’t force too much if your child has fear of water, but some initiation activity or making him watch the fun may be good. I suggest, stay around the pool during the initial classes if your child is young or a bit nervous about the classes.
Here I have handpicked the list of best swimming pools in and around Delhi/NCR for your little one, you may also get enrolled with your kid and have a gala time together.
