Pre-school swim camps

Our friends at Nemo Swimming are running some exciting three-day swim camps for swimmers aged 3-4 years.

These camps will take place Monday to Wednesday the weeks commencing the 1st, 8th and 15th August. Perfect for new and existing customers.

Baby, toddler & pre-school lessons

The fabulous Nemo Swimming team will also be running some summer swimming lessons for babies, toddlers and pre-school children.

These classes are suitable for existing swimmers who can't bear to be away from the pool over the summer, and also for new customers who want to introduce their little ones to the joys of swimming.

Junior swim camps

For children who are at school already (or starting reception in September), our friends at SwimNE are bringing back their super-popular three-day swim camps throughout August.

These camps are suitable for swimmers working towards stages 1-6 and give children the opportunity to practice their aquatic skills, build their confidence and perfect their swimming technique.

1-1 summer lessons

SwimNE will also be offering additional 1-1 sessions for school-aged children throughout the summer holidays.

These sessions are suitable for children working towards stages 1-6 and can be booked on a session-by-session basis.


Diving workshops

Although these workshops aren't at PaddlePod, they are simply too good to not share!

SwimNE will be hosting some super-exciting diving workshops at Sport Central (Newcastle City Centre). Fab for swimmers working towards stage 7 and up, these one-hour workshops sound like great fun!

Rookie lifeguard taster sessions

Again, this is a session that is being run by our friends at SwimNE and will take place at Sport Central (Newcastle City Centre).

Swimmers who are working towards stage 7 and up, these sessions give children a taste of what happens in a rookie lifeguard course - something that many of our swimmers go on to do once they have completed their learn to swim journey with us.

Family fun (open swim) sessions

Our family fun (open swim) sessions are returning! Suitable for all ages, each session is 60 minutes and includes changing time. The pool will be filled with small inflatables, toys and floats. Unlike our family swim sessions, though, you won't have your very own area of the pool... you'll be free to explore it all!

Baby & pre-school (open swim) sessions

These sessions are exclusively for babies, toddlers and pre-school children - and their grown-ups, of course! A great opportunity to introduce your little one to swimming and all the fun it provides, or just enjoy some time in the pool as a family. Have your paddle in the pool then head upstairs for a bite to eat and to explore our free play areas!

Family swim sessions

Prefer to have your very own area of the pool? Then check out our ever-popular family swim sessions!

Each area is suitable for up to eight swimmers (all ages) and comes filled with toys, floats and small inflatables. Sessions are 60 minutes (including changing time) and cost just £30*... that's as little as £3.75 per person!

Soft plan fun

Our play areas will be open 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday as usual (includes bank holidays). Don't forget that these areas are free to use when you're making a purchase from the cafe.

You'll find a soft play and a toddler play area at Killingworth, and a play cafe at Shiremoor. Suitable for children aged 0-5 years old. No need to book - just drop-in.
