The Dolphin Swim School began one Saturday afternoon in October 1989 when our founder, Sid held his first private swimming lessons at Wimbledon College.

Sid had been the team coach for the Merton Borough swim team for several years and had seen them through many galas and competitions including the London Youth Games. Due to his love of swimming and after being asked by many parents if he gave lessons Sid decided to open the Dolphin Swim School.

That was 25 years ago and despite Sid passing away in January 2013 we are still going strong.
Over the years we opened more sessions at Wimbledon until we were teaching every day after school and on Saturdays, we also have our Mitcham Centre which also has our own jungle gym open Monday - Sunday.

We also starred in Ten of London’s best swimming pools!
