    I started private swimming classes in Abu Dhabi with Sudesh a month ago. He is a great coach with great pedagogical skill. He had the capacity to assess very quickly my level and to adapt his coaching so that I progress smoothly but significantly. I definitely recommend Sudesh as a swim coach.

    Advantage Sports is an extremely professional sports club. Coaches are very well qualified and experienced and management knows how to match coaches’ expertise to clients’ requirements and needs. I had a wonderful time working with Sudesh who is specialized in stroke development and who was able to improve my freestyle technique with stroke analysis, drills and general swim coaching. I was looking into getting more efficient in the open water for my triathlon races and he did a great job making me feel the water and swim more smoothly.

    Did the intermediate swimming with swimming trainer Sudesh and was transformed from someone who could only manage one 25m length before rest into a competent swimmer who just completed 2 Triathlons with 750m open water swims. Would highly recommend Sudesh - prompt, courteous and a pleasure to deal with. Two thumbs up.

    My 5 year old son started swimming lessons in Abu Dhabi last term and is continuing this term with Coach Sudesh. He is a very kind, positive, and supportive teacher for young children. My son has learned so much and is now swimming like a pro...almost ;) We couldn't be happier. Thank you, Coach Sudesh!!!!

    Advantage sports has talented and professionally qualified coaches. We (myself and my son Shlok) have had a very good experience. Both of us have enrolled for its swimming lessons over many seasons with coach Sudesh. He has taught my son Shlok correct techniques n he has really progressed with his swimming skills. Sessions with Sudesh are also fun filled n Shlok looks forward to his weekly class. Sudesh has coached me well to get over my water phobia n learn the basics of swimming......I recommend Advantage sports to people seeking expert advice.

    My boys have been swimming here for almost 2 years, starting from the baby classes with Jason and now with Sudesh for the past year. They are 3 & 4 years old and both love the water! The swimming classes are the highlight of the week. The instructor is positive, proffesional and makes it all look like 30mins of fun! I absolutely recommend the instructor and Advantage Sports UAE!

    We originally enrolled our son (age 3) in a beginners swim class with Coach Sudesh almost one year ago. We were so pleased with his progress that we also signed up for adult lessons with Sudesh to satisfy a lifelong dream of swimming laps. We had all taken lessons in the past but never improved as much as we have in the time that we have been working with Coach Sudesh. He takes his time and is very patient with both children and adults. He is extremely professional and helps us to identify even very small corrections that have made HUGE differences in our ability and endurance with the sport. We love being in the pool and are eternally grateful to Sudesh for making swimming so enjoyable for all of us.
