The Nation’s Premier, “Learn to Swim” Provider Opens New Location in the Research Triangle
DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — British Swim School, the nation’s leading “learn to swim” franchise, is excited to announce its newest location in the Durham–Chapel Hill area of North Carolina. Vick Nanda, the proud owner of this franchise, is set to offer vital swimming and water survival skills to the community. Lessons will be held at the indoor pool of the Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Southpoint, Durham, conveniently located on Fayetteville Road near I-40, next to Southpoint Mall and the Streets at Southpoint.
After nearly two decades in the healthcare industry, Vick ventured into entrepreneurship, launching a successful boutique management consulting firm before expanding into childhood sports and education. “Franchising offered a unique business model where the parent company supports the launch and running of the business”, Vick said. “I was inspired by British Swim School’s focus on water survival, especially for young kids. Their strong reputation and supportive culture aligned with my values as a business professional.”
Reflecting on a personal tragedy from his youth, Vick emphasized the importance of water safety. “While growing up, I didn’t realize the importance of water safety until a tragic incident involving a high school friend. As an adult, I ensured my children learned how to swim early and developed a positive relationship with water.”
For over 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills by teaching infants, children and adults of all ages the skills needed for water acclimation, water survival, and stroke development. Its mission — ensure that every person, regardless of age or ability, has the opportunity to become a safe and happy swimmer.
Across the nation, eleven people die every day from unintentional drownings, with nearly 4,000 deaths occurring each year. Research shows that participation in formal swim programs, such as those offered by British Swim School, can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning. However, the risk of drowning isn’t limited to children: a Red Cross survey found that more than half of all Americans (54%) either can’t swim or don’t have the basic swimming skills needed to save themselves in the event of a water emergency.
“We are delighted to welcome Vick to our family,” said Ashley Gundlach, President of British Swim School. “His commitment to community safety and his entrepreneurial spirit makes him a perfect fit for our mission. The Durham–Chapel Hill area will greatly benefit from his dedication to building a water-safe community.”
