Swimming classes abound in Chennai and everyone is trying to get a piece of this business. So that means it should be easy for you to find somewhere, that's close to your home from my list below. As I was doing the research for my kid (and this article) I found not only swimming centers offering classes but also nice hotels, good schools and clubs in Chennai doing the same. For parents out there who have always wanted to learn to swim themselves, enroll along with your child! So here I present best swimming coaching classes for kids in Chennai. I hope this list helps all of you who are looking for your kids to have a splashing good time, beat the heat and learn to swim in Namma Chennai!

I also found out that all the good clubs in Chennai like The Madras Race Course Club, Gymkhana and the Boat Club offer courses for NON MEMBERS as long as they know a member of that club. That's what I’m doing for my daughter. So if you know a member of any of these clubs near your home, you can explore that option as well! Happy Swimming !
