Swimming club

The swimming club is intended for children aged 7 to 12. In the club, you do not learn to swim or complete badges like in the swimming school. Instead, you play and do all kinds of fun things under the guidance of an instructor. You must register for the swimming club as you would for the swimming school, but there is no course fee. The club is available at the price of the spa ticket. The children come independently from upstairs through the changing rooms to the pool, where they are met by the club instructor.
