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!
I went through the link posted by someone on training classes by Nisha Millet, it said Adult classes for the weekend is 4k / person, which is 15 classes not sure if the rate is good or on the higher side. This will happen in Hotel Hycena near Maharaja restaurant.

Basically not much motivation to go to Gym so looking at sports to cut the flab

I honestly feel the rate is a bit on the higher side.

If you live in HSR Layout then this place should be OK to learn. But if you want to cut flab then you need to be regular with this, or dump the vehicle get a cycle

Hi Guys, If any one interested in a new pool. A new pool (10 lane) is opened in JP Park (Mathikere). It's run by Dolphin Aquatics Club. Understand it's good and they have a coaching class at 20:15 hours and it's Rs. 3000/- for 20 days.

Sorry to bump such an old post, but are there any pools in and around Indiranagar? I'd really like to get started with this, but so far, have only found the Leela Palace pool as an option, which, of course, is prohibitively expensive!!

Swim Life provides coaching @ CITI NEST Sports Center, Indiranagar (With Heated Pools)

You can check their website for more details; I have taken swimming lessons from them at the St Joseph's Indian High school pool; the trainers are all professional swimmers so the quality is good.

Np. Not sure about the membership, but I guess you can try calling them to find out.

Hi
Are you talking about this pool?
http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl...07690435148878

Have you started going to this pool? Can you tell me what the monthly or yearly membership charges for this pool? Also do they remain open in winters?

Thanks.

There is a new swimming pool in banashankari. Built to standard size of 50X75M. It is maintained by a private agency and public batches are held from 5AM till 1PM. Weekly off is Monday. Evenings are used for coaching classes and lap training. Also there is a ladies only batch once in the morning and from 830-930PM. Tried the pool as it is just opposite my house and for now, things are awesome. But Sundays are crowded.

I go to the Jayanagar swimming pool regularly and there is not much rush nowadays if you take the membership card for 1400pm and go for the members only batch. Of all the swimming pools in south bangalore, I find that one to be pretty good.

Guys, any good swimming pool in the JP Nagar area or bannerghatta road? I stay in 4th Phase and looking for a good maintained pool for self and kids. Kids are 4 year old and hence a kid friendly pool is preferred. They love water and want to get them started with swimming. Appreciate any pointers. Thanks in advance.

Cheers
