We are finally able to announce that we will be opening our fully refurbished Stanway centre on Thursday December 3rd!  We will be running all sessions as per our time table.  The only change is that we now require you to book in advance for our Just Swim sessions.  We can’t wait to see you all again soon.  The First Strokes Team.

Our first bespoke purpose built teaching facility.  First Strokes Stanway was opened in 2003 by the Lord Mayor of Colchester. Since opening with 700 students the pool has been a huge success and has many thousands of students through its doors.

The centre is perfectly formed to offer a comfortable and relaxing experience for both the students and the viewers. The pool can cater for all ages and abilities.
