Zwembad Haags Hopje is the number one swimming school in The Hague and Scheveningen

Our pool is located in a beautiful private villa at the Scheveningseweg 108 in The Hague. We also swim at swimming pool the Blinkerd for the Frog, Dolphin, Orca and A and C diploma and in Overbosch for Frog, Dolphin and diploma B. We teach children from the age of 4 years old in small groups of maximum 6 children. In the deep pool groups are bigger. Our swimming instructors are all qualified and teach at other swimming pools as well. We are recognized by the NRZ, which means we will issue the official ABC diploma. For this recognition we have worked hard: we have obtained our degrees, completed tests, documents and plans with the recognition as a result.

Haags Hopje is named after the Haagsche Hopjes. The founder, Mr. Rademaker, of this delicious candy has lived in the building of Zwembad Haags Hopje on the Scheveningseweg 108. His candy factory was situated on the Laan van Meerdervoort.
