Any of the DDA Sports Complexes will allow you to become a seasonal temporary member and use their swimming pools - charges are higher than for permanent members, and some time-slot restrictions may apply, but yes, you can swim.

well you do have the mighty Yamuna available FOC ... although You might also have to deal with different species of organic and inorganic matter . O what a rush it would be! .

On a seriuos note I think access to a club/hotel would be your best bet. If you could get hold of a member @ soem club you could get away quite economically as compared hotel pool.

I used to go for swimming at Hotel Siddhartha. They used to charge around 12k for a season. But the pool is now closed for the past 3-4 years.

Yes they do, and hence they require fillings at regular intervals.

PBC charge Rs 500/week or Rs 5000 for entire season till Sept per person. And minimum age limit for Swimming pool is 8yrs plus. So if you have any kids around they won't allow.

Are there any all season swimming pools in south Delhi? Also, does any bhpian have any experience with NDMC swimming pools?

For people in Gurgaon- I've found a good option for swimming in Gurgaon. I used to swim in Huda Gymkhaana for 2k a month(as of 2 years ago). It used to be insanely crowded. This time around I have taken a swimming membership at Bristol Hotel. It's 7k a month or 30k for a year. Though obviously the max you can utilise it, is from Holi till Diwali.
It doesn't get very crowded and it's a rooftop pool.

Has anyone used powered swimming goggles? I use Mariner Optical from Speedo and am totally fed up with the anti fog coating reacting with the chlorine to form its own weird type of fog in the lens.

Any advise on maintenance would be greatly appreciated.

Though I don't use powered goggles but fogging is very common in almost all goggles, even the ones that come with anti-fog coating. I've tried about 5-6 goggles in the last 2 years, most expensive being ~5k, but none took care of fogging.

What did work was coating the insides using my saliva. I usually do it once before I enter the pool and at max have to repeat this one more time during my one hour session.

Now I have two set of goggles, one that cost me 495/- and the other 995/- and these are way better.

Lastly, rinse the goggles with normal water as soon as you are out of the pool to avoid chlorine residue on them. I usually leave my goggles, cap and shorts in half a bucket of water for 15-20 mins once I'm back home.

EDIT: Which pool do you go to?
