Are there any pools which teaches swimming to Kids/Women? My wife and daughter would love to learn swimming and i have some trouble finding a place with a good instructor within reasonable distance (~10 Kms) from Indiranagar.

HAL has a very good swimming pool. However their timings are weird. Its 9AM to 10AM and 3 PM - 5 PM. Its Rs.1000 a month. You will need to pay by DD upfront and fill out a form along with a doctor's certificate. The forms will be available at the HAL sports complex which is just after the Vimanapura PO opposite the HAL gate.

I would suggest the BAC(basavanagudi aquatic center)next to national college ground. It used to be very well maintained when i used to go swimming there a couple years back. But i have not heard any bad comments so far, so still must be quite well maintained. If visiting the public batch it will be a little crowded.But as far as i remember they also used to have these summer training camps. They have 3 pools,one for toddlers and a large pool for adults.They also have another large pool where only athletes and members are allowed.

Hi,
Of the public pools in south Bangalore, the BAC (Basvangudi Aquatic club) is supposed to be the best. In summers they have training batches for men, women and children. The best part is that they have a night batch which runs from 9 to 10 PM, and have only people who are serious. Also they have good coaches for both men and women. The charges till last year were 2K per month for training. However, if you are swimming enthusiast, then you can take a six month membership for around 1.2K per month or so. But they are strict about this. They make you swim a complete length of the Olympic size pool before they grant you that membership. The pool is clean, weekly cleaning is on wednesday.

I am looking for a swimming pool near Bannerghatta road that has a time slot between 9 AM (or better 10) to 12 Noon. Looking for a well maintained pool and a good crowd. Any inputs?

Apart from classes is this place open for just swimming? As in is it open to public for doing just laps?

I live pretty close to this place that you have given directions for, but I don't remember seeing a board of some sort for this.

Whoops! Sorry for the year late reply!

I did not go to this place last year, but I recently started using their pay as you go scheme which is 100 bux/hour.

The pool is ok, but its a little too small for serious swimming, recreational and learning maybe OK. But I am looking for other options as well. Heard about a pool in Vibgyor high school!

Yes they have training batches as well.

I believe that if you learn in a better place you will naturally learn better too

This pool is just about OK. For me its practically not possible to travel to Basavangudi or Sadashivnagar for the proper pools so making do with this one for now!
