Hello, Suk1, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

We go for swimming classes on Sunday.

The sentence above does not sound idiomatic. Where have you taken it from? We would normally say:

- We go swimming on Sundays.


- We have/take swimming lessons on Sundays.

The main verb is go, have, take. "swimming" is a gerund that premodifies the noun "lessons," meaning "lessons of swimming." The gerund is like a noun. Compare with tennis lessons (lessons of tennis).
