what we offer


An in-depth consultation is routine to understand the requirements of the individual when adults attend private lessons.


Those attending private lessons are not required to become club members.

We offer a package of eight lessons during eight consecutive weeks to allow for continuity of learning. These are set at a specific time and day, weekly and their duration is 30 minutes.

what if I am late for my lesson?

Arriving late will reduce lesson time its effectiveness. Your lesson must terminate on time so that our next client is not delayed. If you are late, please try to contact reception to inform your instructor.

what if i miss my lesson?

No refunds are issued for missed lessons unless you are ill and a doctor’s note is provided. Any lessons missed cannot be made up unless under exceptional circumstances. If you know in advance you cannot attend, please do try to contact reception to inform your instructor.

Missed lessons and rescheduling classes hinder progress - please bear this in mind before committing to any swimming course.


Practice, apart from your scheduled lesson time will always aid the learning process. However if you are not a regular or confident swimmer, we advise practice sessions only after consultation with your instructor.

  • Laura Sevenus was a South African national competitive swimmer in the 60’s. She was one of five South Africans chosen to tour with the American Water Follies as a synchronized swimmer, thus changing her amateur status.

    In 1964, her professional career began when she assisted the South African team coach training beginners, and later established her first private swim school. Her understanding of parent and children’s needs led to the creation of a purpose-designed facility for teaching swimming in Cape Town, this is where she developed what is now the Sevenus Swimming Method®.

    She has contributed her evolving insight and expertise to various working groups in South Africa, Sweden, Germany and the UK and has been instrumental in defining swim teaching standards in South Africa. She is also a certified aquarobics instructor and Watsu® practitioner.
